题目: The Saga of Neutrino Oscillations
Massive and mixed neutrinos are the first signs of new physics beyond the Standard Model of particle physics. Which contributes the Nobel Prize in Physics 2015 awarded jointly to Takaaki Kajita and Arthur B. McDonaldfor the discovery of neutrino oscillations. Professor Wong will talk about his related stories and reflections.
Professor Henry Tsz King Wong is a research fellow and deputy director in the Institute of Physics, Academia Sinica in Taiwan. After receiving his bachelor degree in Physics with first honor in the University of Oxford, he earned his Ph.D. degree and being as a research staff Physicist in the California Institute of Technology. And then he worked as a research fellow in European Laboratory of Particle Physics in CERN. Soon after he was promoted to be a research staff Physicist in CERN. In 1996, he went to Taiwan, developed and led the TEXONO (Taiwan EXperiment On NeutrinO) Collaboration consisting of India, Turkish and China scientists at the Kuo-Sheng reactor neutrino Laboratory. The breakthrough researches includes a search of neutrino magnetic moments, measurements on the electroweak interaction parameters and studies on physics beyond the standard model as well as opening new window for light WIMP searches. His research on neutrino physics, astrophysics and particle physics, as well as dark matter searches has been honored with numerous prizes and awards in Taiwan. Prof. Wong frequently serves the professional reviewer of research proposal reviews for experimental collaborations and the committee member of several important international Conferences.
