He will present “Particle Detectors: Modern Cathedrals” Tuesday, Oct. 31, at 5:30 p.m. at the Tinkham Veale University Center.

Talk details

The detectors at modern particle accelerators are awe-inspiring masterpieces of engineering weighing thousands of tons and requiring the coordinated effort of thousands of scientists and engineers at hundreds of universities and laboratories around the world. How do they work, how are they designed, built and operated?
