Abstract: Since the discovery of the Higgs boson, the path towards the future of High Energy Physics becomes a hot topic, even for the general public. The idea to build a Higgs factory seems more and more attractive since it can address many of the human's doubts and questions of the Standard Model and may reveal clues for physics way beyond the current understanding. In 2012, the Circular Electron-Positron Collider (CEPC), followed by a Super Proton-Proton Collider (SPPC) in the same tunnel, was proposed. The speaker discusses in this lecture the challenges and opportunities of this project, and its impact to science, technology and society development of China.
Prof Yifang Wang received his PhD in High Energy Physics from the University of Florence in 1991. He was faculty at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Stanford University. He joined the Institute of High Energy Physics (IHEP) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2001, and is currently the Director of the Institute.
Prof Wang’s research covers high energy electron-positron collisions, neutrinos and space experiments and he was a member of L3, AMS, Palo Verde and KamLAND experiments. At IHEP, he led the design, construction and science efforts of the BESIII experiment at the e+e- collider in Beijing. This experiment recently discovered a new type of matter made of at least 4 quarks, called Zc(3900). He also initiated the Daya Bay reactor neutrino experiment and led the design, construction and physics studies. In 2012, this experiment discovered a new type of neutrino oscillation, and for the first time, precisely measured the neutrino mixing angle θ13.
Prof Wang received prestigious awards including the Panofsky Prize for Experimental Particle Physics by the American Physical Society (2014) and Nikkei Asia Prize (2015). He and the Daya Bay Collaboration also won the 2016 Breakthrough Prize in Fundamental Physics.
