  • Description: Physics is an experimental science. A theory, however elegant, is only meaningful if it can be verified by experiment. Experiments can disprove theories but theories can never disprove experiments. Advancements in physics occur when experimental results contradict a prevailing theory creating a new theory. In this talk I will tell five stories about my personal encounters with experimental physics since I left Michigan.

    Detailed Information
    All talks are free and refreshments will be served. Visitor parking for the seminars (Central Campus) is across the street from the Dennison Building in the U-M Church Street structure. There is a $2.00 parking charge implemented by U-M Parking Services.
