Experimental Nuclear and Particle Physics
Are there (as yet undetected) super-weak forces at sub-attometer length scales that shaped the evolution of the early universe?
Do neutrons in a heavy nucleus occupy a slightly larger volume than the protons, thus forming a "neutron skin"?
Are neutrinos their own anti-particles?
Is lepton number conserved?
How large is charged lepton flavor violation in nature?
Can quarks, gluons, their motion and self-interactions account for the observed properties of the proton?
