Professor Lauded for Contributions to Experimental Particle Physics

Posted on: Sept. 26, 2018

The American Physical Society (APS) is recognizing a professor in the College of Arts and Sciences (A&S) for his contributions to particle physics.

Sheldon Stone, Distinguished Professor of Physics, is the 2019 recipient of the APS’ prestigious W.K.H. Panofksy Prize in Experimental Particle Physics.

The prize consists of $10,000, a travel allowance to the meeting where Stone will be honored and a certificate citing his ongoing research into the fundamental forces and particles in the universe.

“We applaud [Stone’s] transformative contributions to flavor physics and hadron spectroscopy, in particular through his intellectual leadership on detector construction and analysis on the CLEO and Large Hadron Collider beauty [LHCb] experiments, and for the long-standing, deeply influential advocacy for flavor physics at hadron colliders,” says APS President Roger W. Falcone. For detailsl, please visit A&S News
