Martin Perl Symposium
Friday, 12 February 2016
Panofsky Auditorium, SUSB (Bldg. 53)
SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory
Color Stripe

A symposium will be held to celebrate the scientific career of Martin Perl with contributions from those who knew and worked with him throughout his career.

Martin had a fascinating career: It began in New York in chemical engineering, evolved into doctoral research with Rabi on nuclear dipole moments, took a turn in the Mid-West to study hadronic interactions in Glazer’s bubble chambers, and moved on to a new lab on the West Coast to pursue his fascination with the nature of leptons, win a Nobel Prize for discovery of the third generation of fermions, and question the asymptotic freedom of quarks.

Along the way, Martin established a unique style as an experimentalist, mentored a generation of physicists, and reflected his social convictions and concerns as a founder of the APS Forum on Physics and Society.

Participants include R. Cahn, J. Dorfan, G. Feldman, G. Hanson,
L. Jones, D. Loomba, H. Meyer, B. Richter, R. Taylor, S. Ting

Organizing Committee: Patricia Burchat, David Burke, John Jaros, Vera Luth, Michael Peskin, Rafe Schindler
