Vera Lüth (SLAC)
DESY auditorium, 17:00h

Wolfgang K. H, Panofsky, professor at Stanford University and founding director of the Stanford Linear Accelerator, was a legendary scientist in the second half of the 20th century. He is respected for his contribution in three important areas: as a scientist who advanced particle physics and accelerator development, as the founder of SLAC, a research laboratory of international rank, and a long-time advisor to the US government on science policy, on national security, and on arms control. Over many years he was the outstanding leader of the US National Academy of Sciences’ efforts to advise the US government on the need for international agreements on nuclear non-proliferation and arms reduction.
This seminar will high light the accomplishment of the gentleman who became a legendary and beloved figure to all who had a chance to meet and interact with him, and who called him simply Pief.
