Final Progress Report to the Department of Energy's Office of Science on the Committee on Nuclear Physics

Date: January 1, 2001
Creator: Astronomy, Board on Physics and
Description: The Committee on Nuclear Physics (CNP), under the National Research Council's Board on Physics and Astronomy (BPA), conducted an assessment of the field as part of the BPA's survey of physics in the last decade, titled ''Physics in a New Era.'' The CNP report was published by the National Academy Press in early 1999 under the title ''Nuclear Physics: The Core of Matter, The Fuel of Stars.''

The Physics of SERAPHIM

The Physics of SERAPHIM

Date: October 1, 2001
Creator: MARDER, BARRY M.
Description: The Segmented Rail Phased Induction Motor (SERAPHIM) has been proposed as a propulsion method for urban maglev transit, advanced monorail, and other forms of high speed ground transportation. In this report we describe the technology, consider different designs, and examine its strengths and weaknesses.

Physics with CLAS

Physics with CLAS

Date: September 1, 1997
Creator: Collaboration, E. Smith for the CLAS
Description: The authors describe the physics program and the experimental equipment of the CEBAF Large Acceptance Spectrometer, CLAS. The spectrometer is located in Hall B, one of the three experimental areas at the Continuous Electron Beam Accelerator Facility (CEBAF) operated by the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility. They review the program to study baryon resonances to demonstrate the multi-particle detection capabilities of the CLAS detector.

Physics and Government

Physics and Government

Date: August 24, 1999
Creator: Hendry, Nancy H.
Description: In defining the powers and duties of the three branches of government, the U.S. Constitution never explicitly referred to Science, except in the patent clause. But many technical responsibilities are implied in references to weights and measures, the census, and the like. Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, and in particular Benjamin Franklin, were highly literate in science, but it was their disciple, President John Quincy Adams who promoted as a matter of policy a direct role of the government in science--in particular with respect to astronomy, land surveys and navigation--all physical sciences. Some agencies of government--notably the National Bureau of Standards and the Department of Agriculture were founded in the early days of the Republic with scientific and technical missions. Since then the involvement of the government with science has waxed and waned but the major expansion of the interaction between physics and government occurred after World War II when physicists demonstrated the power of their craft during mobilization of science in support of the war effort. In discussing the interaction of physics with government we should distinguish ''science in government''--scientific input into policy making--from ''government in science,'' which is the support and management of that part of the overall scientific ...
