NEWPORT NEWS—Arkaitz Rodas, a postdoctoral research associate at College of William & Mary, has been awarded the 2022 Jefferson Science Associates (JSA) Postdoctoral Prize. His project, titled “Understanding exotic mesons from quantum chromodynamics,” will use computational mathematical tools to study a class of non-ordinary particles known as light mesons.

Just like protons and neutrons, light mesons are made up of smaller particles called quarks. However, instead of having three quarks each like protons and neutrons, light mesons only have two: one quark and one antiquark.
