Smith to present third talk in President's Lecture Series, March 7
Posted March 1, 2002; 06:00 p.m.
Stewart Smith, the Class of 1909 Professor of Physics, will speak on "Imperfect Opposites: Matter vs. Antimatter at Accelerators and in the Universe" at 4:30 p.m. Thursday, March 7, in McCosh 10. It will be the third and final talk this year in the President's Lecture Series initiated by President Tilghman to bring together faculty members from different disciplines.
Smith will discuss his work on an experiment at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center, where a striking new difference in the behavior of matter and antimatter was discovered last summer. He will relate this work to the disappearance of antimatter in the universe after the "Big Bang."
The lecture, which is open to the public, will be simulcast on Tiger Video Channel 7 and on Princeton community cable Channel A11. It also will be Webcast; for viewing information, visit WebMedia .
