    EVENT TIME 19:20 - 20:40

    VENUE West Terrace Classroom


    High-energy particle collisions are one of the main experimental tools for studying particle physics. What fundamental physical questions need to be addressed by this method? What products emerge from collisions and how can they be detected? This lecture will provide a brief introduction to the basic principles of particle physics research and the major international large-scale collision experiments in operation, as well as the future planning and development of large-scale particle physics experiments.

    Brief introduction to the speaker

    Cai Zheng, associate professor of Astronomy Department of Tsinghua University and deputy director of astronomy technology center of Tsinghua University. He received his doctorate in Astrophysics from the University of Arizona in 2015, engaged in postdoctoral research at the University of California from 2015 to 2019, and won the "Hubble fellow" of NASA in 2016. Joined Tsinghua University in 2019, He was selected into the national talent program (the youth program of the thousand person program of the Organization Department of the CPC Central Committee) and served as the reviewer of magazines such as nature and nature astronomy. He systematically discovered the large-scale structure of the early universe and revealed the metal origin of interstellar space in the early universe. Relevant achievements are listed in nature astronomy And other magazines, and the articles have been cited more than 2000 times. He is also participating in the construction of the world's largest spectral Sky Survey Telescope (MUST).
