Physical Review C First result from Jefferson Lab's upgraded CEBAF opens door to exploring universal glue
The first experimental result has been published from the newly upgraded Continuous Electron Beam Accelerator Facility at the US Department of Energy's Jefferson Lab. The result demonstrates the feasibility of the experiment that is designed to study quark confinement: why no quark has ever been found alone.
