Abstract: Prof Nima Arkani-Hamed from the Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton presents shares his study on quantum mechanics and spacetime, and also demonstrates his research on scattering amplitudes.
Prof Nima Arkani-Hamed received his PhD in Physics from the University of California at Berkeley in 1997. He was postdoctoral fellow at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory from 1997 to 1999. He returned to Berkeley and was faculty of Physics from 1999 to 2001. He then moved to Harvard University and became Professor of Physics in 2002. He joined the Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton in 2008, and is currently Professor of Natural Sciences.
Prof Arkani-Hamed’s research has shown how the extreme weakness of gravity, relative to other forces of nature, might be explained by the existence of extra dimensions of space, and how the structure of comparatively low-energy physics is constrained within the context of string theory. He has taken a lead in proposing new physical theories that can be tested at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN.
Prof Arkani-Hamed received numerous awards including the Fundamental Physics Prize, the Raymond and Beverly Sackler International Prize, the Gribov Medal, and the INFN-Pisa Gamberini Prize, etc.
