The gravitational acceleration of antimatter, gbar, has yet to be directly measured; an unexpected outcome of its measurement could change our understanding of gravity, the universe, and the possibility of a fifth force. Three avenues are apparent for such a measurement: antihydrogen, positronium,... read more

Creating a trustworthy environment for open science is critical. How can we best do this as scientific collaborations become global and interdisciplinary, the capacity of instruments and cyberinfrastructure increases, and the resulting data sets explode in volume? Most enterprise IT practices are... read more

The electroweak sector of the Standard Model (SM) of particles can be tested either with precision measurements of fundamental observables or with direct tests of its underlying non-Abelian gauge structure. Precise measurements of the weak mixing angle and the mass of the W boson probe the... read more
