科普快遞講座系列(英語)


●從大型強子對撞機看物質和宇宙的基本結構
Studying the Fundamental Structure of Matter and the Universe at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) 
The discovery of the Higgs particle (also known as "God particle") at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN in 2012 marks the beginning of a golden era in fundamental physics. The upgraded LHC has recently restarted particle collisions with unprecedentedly high centre-of-mass energy of 13 TeV and intensity. A window of opportunities to discover new physics that may revolutionise our understanding of the fundamental structure of matter and the universe has opened up! This lecture will introduce at an elementary level physics of the Higgs particle and the range of new physics that LHC experiments will look for.
●透過粒子和非電磁波來「看」
"Seeing" with Particles and Non-Electromagnetic Waves 
For hundreds of years, physicists have been studying the universe and structure of matter using electromagnetic waves. However, it is also possible to probe structure of matter in different length scales using particles and non-electromagnetic waves. The use of matter waves such as electrons and neutrons have brought about breakthroughs in microscopy, allowing us to "see" individual atoms. At the other extreme, the detection of solar and supernova neutrinos have led to the birth of neutrino astronomy. Direct detection of gravitational waves will open up the possibility to study questions about space-time, cosmology and structure in the universe. This lecture will cover these topics at an introductory level.
