Professor Devlin's research interests are experimental high energy physics - the study of the fundamental particles in nature. He has performed experiments at the Berkeley Bevatron and 184-inch cyclotron, at the Princeton-Pennsylvania Accelerator, the Alternating-Gradient Synchrotron at Brookhaven National Laboratory and at CERN. From 1974 to 1985 at Fermilab, he and his collaborators performed a series of experiments on the polarization and magnetic moments of hyperons. For this work, he and Professor Lee Pondrom of the University of Wisconsin shared the 1994 W.K.H. Panofsky Prize of The American Physical Society. Professor Devlin's current research is centered on proton-antiproton annihilations at 1.8-Trillion Electron-Volts with CDF, the Collider Detector at Fermilab.
Professor Devlin changed from Astrophysics in 2005. He worked on the Robert C. Byrd Green Bank Telescope (GBT), the world's largest fully steerable single aperture antenna. He is working data analysis for polarization on about 50 galaxies.
Professor Devlin has taught a variety of courses at the undergraduate and graduate level for students studying technical subjects such as physics, engineering, pre-med and biology. He has also taught Astronomy and Cosmology to non-science students. He taught Physics 418, Nuclear and Particle Physics. He last course lab was in Radio Astronomy (2004-2007) using the radio telescope on the roof of Serin Laboratory. Sixteen graduate students have earned their doctorates under his supervision. He retired in 2007, he moved to Rutgers to the University of Pennsylvania.
He is married to
Dr. Nancy Devlin,
a psychologist, educator, author and columnist.
They live in North Brunswick, NJ, and have three sons.
Paul Devlin is a producer, director and Emmy-winning editor for film and video. He produced and directed SlamNation which opened at the Film Forum in New York on July 17, 1998. (See NYTimes Review). His most recent production, Power Trip, has won awards at a number of international film festivals. It has played in Los Angeles and New York and a number of theaters in Europe and the Middle East. It is being scheduled for release in thirty U.S. cities in early 2004. (See NYTimes Review).
