Anselm G. Vossen
Assistant Professor of Physics

Current Research Interests

My field of research is Experimental Nuclear Physics.
I am in particular interested in the imaging of quark and gluons inside the protons to understand how their dynamics influence the property of visible mass.
I work at experiments at Jefferson Lab in Virginia and at KEK in Japan.
At Jefferson Lab we use electron scattering experiments to probe the proton, whereas at KEK we use electron-positron annihilation to study how quarks form particles that we can detect and how we can learn about the quantum numbers of the initial quarks from the final state particles.
Together, these experiments can tell us about the quark and gluon content of the proton.
