The scientific researcher Chris Quigg lectures at the Science Museum today

Mar 4, 2005

The lecture will look at the new possibilities offered by research into Particle Physics and its newest instruments and experiment designs.

The prestigious researcher from the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in the US (Fermilab), the largest high energy physics research institute in the world, Chris Quigg, will be giving a lecture today, 4th March, at 7pm in the Auditorio Santiago Grisolía of the Science Museum. The lecture is titled “Upcoming Revolutions in Particle Physics”.
According to Chris Quigg, the coming decade will provide incredible opportunities for particle physics. The new instruments and experiments that have been designed to explore the frontiers of the highest energy forms will give us deeper knowledge of the curiosities of the micro-world. Our knowledge development will pose ambitious questions that we are not yet able to answer.
Chris Quigg is a Doctor of Physics from the University of Berkely. Since 1974 he has been a researcher at Fermilab, an institute located in Chicago, where for ten years he has been Director of the Department of Theoretical Physics. Quigg’s research encompasses different fields of particle physics, from hadrons structure to the interactions of super-high energy neutrinos. He is a member of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and of the American Physical Society, and until 2004 he was editor of the Annual Review of Nuclear and Particle Science.
