Lee Sobotka is a Professor of Chemistry and Physics at Washington University in St. Louis. He has conducted experiments at the NSCL, ANL, ORNL, LBL, TAMU, TUNL, Higs, LANSCE, GSI, and SATURNE. His work has been in the areas of the dynamics of heavy-ion collisions, the density of states of nuclei (and thus the decay of hot nuclei), the in-medium nucleon-nucleon correlations, and continuum decay spectroscopy. He is a fellow of the American Physical Society and a recent winner of the Glenn T. Seaborg award in Nuclear Chemistry.


Viewpoint: Getting a better handle on nuclear matter at low density

New calculations of the effects of asymmetry in numbers of neutrons and protons in nuclei agree well with experiment and provide vital information in understanding nuclear matter at low density. Read More »
