Office Hours Spring 2011

On Skype (Skype name: sfpate) via arrangement


Dr. Pate's research interests include:

  • The role of angular momentum in low-energy collisions of medium-mass nuclei
  • The lifetimes of states of neutron-rich fp- shell nuclei
  • The measurement of spin-dependent asymmetries in nucleon-nucleon scattering to test models of meson-exchange forces
  • The use of internal targets in particle storage rings as an important experimental tool
  • The use of deep-inelastic scattering to explore the quark-gluon structure of nucleons
  • The adventure of investigating the properties of matter at extremes of energy density and temperature
