  • Description:

    Particle physicists are increasingly relying on high-energy colliders to recreate the conditions of early Universe after the big bang. Massive detectors are built to study collisions produced by these colliders. In this lecture, Professor Qian will discuss the principles of high-energy colliders and particle detection as well as the questions these experiments are trying to answer.
