Paul Souder

Professor of Physics

Research Interests

  • Research which uses the spin property of elementary particles to study fundamental problems in nuclear physics.
  • Precise measurement of small correlations between scattering rates and spin direction arising from parity violation, exploring the parity-violating components of the Standard Model of particle physics, as well as possible extensions of that model.
  • Measurement of neutron radius of heavy nuclei, with implications for neutron star astrophysics and analysis of atomic parity violatio

Education

1977 Ph.D. in Physics
Princeton University

1966 B.S. in Physics
Wheaton College


Awards & Professional Honors

  • Fellow American Physical Society (1998)
  • Sigma Xi Award for Research Excellence (2001)
