Nearly 200 guests attended a symposium on fundamental physics to celebrate the former deputy director’s numerous scientific contributions, which continue to have a tremendous impact on our understanding of the subatomic world.
H. Pierre Noyes, the first director of SLAC's Theory Group, died in Stanford on Sept. 30, 2016, at age 92. Noyes, a theoretical physicist, leaves behind a legacy of distinctive academic work and activism.
An all-day symposium recognized the professor emeritus for his many contributions to the scientific community, from pioneering synchrotron radiation research at SSRL to making science policies on Capitol Hill.
The American Physical Society has recognized both researchers for their leading role in SLAC’s BABAR experiment, which confirmed theorists’ description of how nature treats matter and antimatter differently.
