This Wiki is used by the GlueX Collaboration at Jefferson Lab, Newport News, Virginia, USA.

This goal of the GlueX experiment is to map the spectrum of gluonic excitations using linearly polarized photons with the ultimate goal of understanding the confinement of quarks and gluons - the novel feature of QCD. A collaboration of nearly 100 from 24 institutions is refining the physics goals and planning the construction of a new beam line, detector and experimental hall (Hall D).
