Nucleon Electro-Weak Structure (NEWS) studies at Ohio University

What is strongly interacting matter ?

img From the stars overhead to the atoms in our own human DNA, all matter is composed of fundamental particles that cannot be divided into smaller parts. Quarks are among the few fundamental particles in the universe. Quarks are bound to each other by the strongest force in the universe. Called simply the strong force, this enormous force binds them so tightly that one quark cannot exist by itself. Nucleons (protons and neutrons) of which almost all things are made are familiar examples of three-quark particles glued together by the strong force. Understanding quarks and the strong force is fundamental to the universe, our world, and ourselves*.
