中國大科學:粒子物理學與宇宙學的前沿

 

日期:2017年7月3日-21

地點:北京大學斯坦福中心(中國北京)

導師:斯坦福大學物理系郭兆林教授

報名資質:成績優異的在讀生,研究生優先

費用:課程費用由斯坦福中心贊助。機票、食宿由學生自己安排并支付。

 

課程介紹

基礎物理學是研究基本粒子、空間、宇宙起源等最深邃的自然本質的學科,這些研究領域的進展一步步向我們揭示出了一個遠超人類想象的現實世界。未來基礎物理的發展將引起所有國家的濃厚興趣---包括那些有不同文化背景和政治觀點的國家。本次研討班我們將探討基礎物理學的前沿研究以及其對社會的關系。

 

雖然人們普遍把基礎物理學的研究工作看做人類最崇高的追求之一,但由于其高昂的成本,過去的大型基礎物理實驗項目主要由歐洲、日本、美國等發達地區和國家開展。如今中國已經發展為世界第二大經濟體,建造大型粒子對撞機、開展空間引力波實驗等粒子物理學和宇宙學的宏偉計劃被提上了日程,但同時也引發了人們的探討:中國真正準備好開展這些宏大的科學項目了嗎?這些項目的回報能否匹配其天價的費用開支?本次暑期班我們將針對這些問題開展研究。

 

學習目標

本次課程的學習目標是:

1、概念上掌握對前沿粒子物理學和宇宙學的概觀;

2、以中國為例,事實核查并系統地分析國內對大型科研項目的支持方和反對方的觀點。

 

北京有北京大學科維里天文與天體物理研究所、高能物理研究所、中國國家天文臺、清華大學等領域內的頂尖科研機構,北京大學斯坦福中心為我們提供了理想的研討地點以及訪問這些頂尖科研機構的便捷機會。

 

課程安排

本次課程為期三周,課程主要由導師授課、嘉賓客座講演以及學生講演組成。

 

第一周:粒子物理學與宇宙學概覽。第一周的課程內容是郭兆林教授于2016年秋季在斯坦福大學所授PHY18N課程的精簡版,其中將包括宇宙學、粒子物理學以及引力波天文學。

 

第二周:客座嘉賓講演與討論。第二周的課程內容將涉及大型粒子對撞機、空間引力波探索、FAST(500米口徑球面射電望遠鏡探索引力波)、中國錦屏地下實驗室(暗物質探索)以及Ali-CMB(宇宙微波背景輻射實驗)。條件允許的情況下,我們將參訪中國高能物理研究所、國家天文臺等研究機構。

 

第三周:事實核查;分析并歸納論據;總結與結業演講。

Big Science in China:

Frontiers in Particle Physics and Cosmology

 

Course title: Big Science in China: Frontiers in Particle Physics and Cosmology

Date: July 3, 2017 - July 21, 2017

Location: Stanford Center at Peking University, Beijing, China

Instructor: Associate Professor Chao-Lin Kuo, Department of Physics, Stanford University

Eligibility: Enrolled students in good academic standing. Graduate students will be given priority.

 

Overview

Fundamental physics is the discipline that studies the deepest mysteries of nature: elementary particles, space time and the origin of the universe.  Progress on these subjects has already revealed a reality far beyond naïve human imagination.  Future developments should be of tremendous interest to all nations, including ones with vastly different cultural backgrounds or political views.  In this graduate seminar, we will discuss research in frontiers of fundamental physics and its relation to society.

 

While it is widely agreed that fundamental physics research is one of the noblest pursuits of mankind, big experimental projects have been historically done in the Europe, Japan, and the US because of their high cost.  Now that China has become the world's second largest economy, ambitious programs in particle physics and cosmology — such as the 100-TeV super particle collider and space-based gravitational wave experiments — have been proposed.  This has stimulated an important discussion:  Is China ready to embark on mega science projects while there are still obvious challenges in the country?  Can the potential returns justify the large price tags? We will comprehensively study these issues in this course.

The instructor Professor Chao-Lin Kuo is an experimental physicist searching for imprints of Big Bang from the South Pole, western Tibet, and space.  Although this is a course that focuses on science policies, students with good knowledge on non-calculus based physics are better prepared to appreciate all aspects of the issues.

 

Learning Goals

The goals of this course are: (1) to provide a conceptual overview of the frontiers of particle physics and cosmology; (2) to fact-check and systematically analyze the pros and cons presented by supporters and objectors of big science projects, with China as a case study.  

 

Peking University is the host institute of KIAA (Kavli Institute of Astronomy and Astrophysics).  Beijing is also home to Institute of High Energy Physics, National Astronomical Observatories of China, Tsinghua University, which are the lead institutes of many of the large physics/cosmology projects.  SCPKU provides the perfect setting to have a serious conversation about big science in China and frontiers of particle physics and cosmology, with plenty of opportunities for lab tours and guest lectures. 

 

Seminar Schedule 

This is a three-week long seminar course consisting of lectures on the subject matter, guest talks, and student presentations.

 

Week 1: Overview of particle physics and cosmology. The format is a condensed version of PHY18N taught by the instructor at Stanford University in autumn 2016.  We will cover topics in cosmology, particle physics, and gravitational-wave astronomy.

 

Week 2: Guest lectures followed by discussions; the subjects will include 100-TeV collider, space-based gravitational wave probes, FAST (300m radio telescope searching for gravitational waves), Jingping Underground facilities (dark matter searches), and Ali-CMB (cosmic microwave background experiment in Tibet). If possible, we will arrange visits to Institute of High Energy Physics, National Astronomical Observatories of China, and other labs.

 

Week 3: Fact-checking; analysis and synthesis of the arguments; summary and presentations.
