TEACHER IN SERVICE CREDITS:

LIPTA will provide you with a 3 hour CTLE certificate for attending our Spring Conference on 4-6-2019

SUNYSB will provide attendance certification for each of the lectures attended during the Spring 2018 semester. NYS teachers who wish to receive CTLE credit for any of these lectures must register HERE  You must register for each lecture you attend and sign-in at the lecture.

PHYSICS LECTURE AT SUNYSB: ESS 001; 7:30PM, Jan C. Bernauer, "The Proton Radius Puzzle", Protons are one of the basic building blocks of the matter around us. But 100 years after their discovery, we still don't understand some of their basic properties very well. The proton's root-mean-square charge radius, describing the extend of the proton's charge distribution --in other words, it's size-- is one of them. In 2010, two experiments presented new results for the radius, using fundamentally different techniques. One measured the energy levels of muonic hydrogen, and extracted the radius from the so called Lamb-shift. The other employed the MAMI electron accelerator to scatter electrons off a hydrogen target to measure the shape of the charge distribution. Their results are about 4% different, about 7 times the experimental uncertainty. Since then, this proton radius puzzle has been the focus of many experimental and theoretical work around the world, but it remains unresolved so far. In the talk, we will go over the history of the puzzle and the experimental methods to measure the radius. I will then discuss the current state, ongoing and future experiments and possible resolutions.
