Professor Bing Zhou, Donald A. Glaser Collegiate Professorship in Physics, Inaugural Lecture

Build The World’s Most Powerful Microscopes for Discoveries-- From bubble chamber to wire chamber for nanonanophysics
Tuesday, November 17, 2020
4:00-5:00 PM
Off Campus Location
Physics research to advance our understanding heavily rely on innovation of new technology and detector development. Innovation of bubble chamber by Donald A. Glaser, a Michigan faculty, won 1960 Nobel Prize in physics, enabled discoveries of many new particles (resonances), which set the experimental foundation of building the quark model. Over the past five decades from bubble chamber to wire chamber, the particle detector size grows from a table-top box to a football field, such as the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). In modern particle experiments, thousands of physicists and engineers worldwide work together to build the most powerful microscopes to study particle physics at the most fundamental level to unlock the mysteries in nature. With an outstanding Michigan team we designed, built, and operated the largest precision muon detector for the ATLAS experiment at the LHC over the past twenty years. This detector is crucial for the Higgs boson discovery in 2012, which was regarded as a scientific breakthrough in particle physics. The discovery opened a new window for research into the properties of the Higgs boson and the electroweak symmetry breaking mechanism, which has unique significance for the dynamics of the Standard Model of particle physics, stretches the horizons of even the most ambitious future-collider proposal.
