Samuel C. C. Ting - Autobiography samuel CC ting Autobiography. 1936 in Ann Arbor, Michigan, the first of threechildren of Kuan Hai ting, a professor From nobel Lectures, Physics 19711980. http://www.nobel.se/physics/laureates/1976/ting-autobio.html
Extractions: I was born on 27 January 1936 in Ann Arbor, Michigan, the first of three children of Kuan Hai Ting, a professor of engineering, and Tsun-Ying Wang, a professor of psychology. My parents had hoped that I would be born in China, but as I was born prematurely while they were visiting the United States, by accident of birth I became an American citizen. Two months after my birth we returned to China. Owing to wartime conditions I did not have a traditional education until I was twelve. Nevertheless, my parents were always associated with universities, and I thus had the opportunity of meeting the many accomplished scholars who often visited us. Perhaps because of this early infiuence I have always had the desire to be associated with university life. Since both my parents were working, I was brought up by my maternal grandmother. My maternal grandfather lost his life during the first Chinese Revolution. After that, at the age of thirty-three, my grandmother decided to go to school, became a teacher, and brought my mother up alone. When I was young I often heard stories from my mother and grandmother recalling the difficult lives they had during that turbulent period and the efforts they made to provide my mother with a good education. Both of them were daring, original, and determined people, and they have left an indelible impression on me.

Jan. 27, 1936, Ann Arbor, Mich., U.S.), American physicist who shared in the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1976 for his discovery of a new subatomic particle, the J/psi particle The son of a Chinese college professor who was studying in the United States when Ting was born, he was raised in mainland China and Taiwan and at the age of 20 emigrated to the United States. He was educated at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, where he received his doctorate in 1962. Ting taught briefly at Columbia University and was group leader at a nuclear facility at Hamburg, W.Ger., before joining the faculty of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, in 1967, becoming a professor in 1969. In 1974 in experiments conducted at the Brookhaven National Laboratory at Upton, Long Island, N.Y., Ting discovered a new subatomic particle that he called the J-particle (now usually called the J/psi particle), the first of a new class of very massive, long-lived mesons . The discovery of this particle, which is thought to be composed of a charmed quark and its antiquark, led to a significant expansion and refinement of the quark model. For this discovery Ting was awarded the 1976 Nobel Prize for Physics jointly with

Extractions: Office of the Vice President for Research Ting After receiving his Ph.D., Ting went to CERN as a Ford Foundation postdoctoral scholar, then joined the faculty at Columbia University where he became interested in the physics of electron-positron pair production. (A positron is a nuclear particle like an electron, but with a positive charge.) In the spring of 1972, Ting, then on the faculty at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, began experiments at the Brookhaven National Laboratory in New York, again involving electron-positron pairs. In August 1974, his experiments produced a surprising reading, which Ting immediately recognized as something very different from theoretical expectations. In 1976, Ting, only 40 years old, and Richter shared the Nobel Prize in Physics. Less than two years had passed since their dual discoveries, the shortest time span from a discovery to such recognition in Nobel history. Today, Ting is the Thomas Dudley Cabot Institute professor of physics at MIT, but maintains many links to Michigan. Last fall, he organized a special symposium at CERN to honor Jones on the occasion of his retirement from the U-M faculty. Ting has helped the Department of Physics with faculty recruitment, and two of his former graduate students, Jianming Qian and Bing Zhou, are members of the faculty.

Extractions: Office of the Vice President for Research Samuel C. C. Ting's association with Ann Arbor goes back to his birth on January 27, 1936. Ting's parents, scholars in their own right, were both graduate students at the University of Michigan in early 1936. The couple planned to return soon to China with his pregnant wife. Chance intervened and the Ting's first child was born almost two months premature. The Ting family did go back to Beijing, China when young Sam was two months old. His father became an engineering professor and his mother a professor of psychology. Ting's maternal grandmother assumed most of the child-rearing duties. World War II prevented Sam Ting from beginning formal schooling until he was 9 years old, although education was always highly valued in his family. It turned out that Ting's maternal grandfather lost his life during the first Chinese Revolution. So, at the age of thirty-three, his grandmother had gone to school, became a teacher, and brought Sam's mother up alone. "When I was young I often heard stories from my mother and grandmother recalling the difficult lives they had during that turbulent period and the efforts they made to provide my mother with a good education," says Ting. "Both of them were daring, original, and determined people, and they have left an indelible impression on me."

Extractions: Contact Information Congressman Michael Capuano (D-MA-8th) will visit MIT's Laboratory for Nuclear Science, the largest on-campus lab of its kind in the nation and the research home of three Nobel Prize winners, at 2 p.m. today in Room 26-505 of the Karl Taylor Compton Laboratory. Capuano is expected to preview the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS) experiment led by Nobel-winner Samuel C.C. Ting and his collaborators Ulrich Becker and Peter Fisher. The Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer is a sophisticated cosmic ray detector that flew in the STS-91 shuttle payload for 10 days in June 1998 and gathered about 100 hours of data. The AMS recorded the tracks of millions of cosmic ray particles, the debris released by explosions in distant starts. AMS is the first large magnet experiment ever placed in the Earth's orbit. AMS's instrumentation allowed researchers to measure higher energy particles with greater accuracy than previously possible. NASA will install AMS on the International Space Station in 2003 to gather data for about three years, which will allow scientists to conduct a much more extensive search for rare cosmic ray particles. The AMS project is an international scientific collaboration that includes 37 research institutions worldwide.

Extractions: 1976 Nobel Prize in Physics The prize was awarded jointly to: "for their pioneering work in the discovery of a heavy elementary particle of a new kind". Charm: The 4th Quark Burton Richter (SLAC) led the group that designed and built the Stanford Positron Electron Asymmetric Ring ( SPEAR ). Experiments at SPEAR in 1973 - 1974 looked at the rate of occurrence of events in which a colliding electron and positron annihilate, disappearing and producing other particles in the process. At certain energies, the rate seemed inexplicably large.
Experimental Facilities: SPEAR This work was recognized by the award of the 1976 nobel Prize in Physics to BurtonRichter of SLAC, an award he shared with samuel CC ting of MIT for the http://www2.slac.stanford.edu/vvc/experiments/spear.html
Extractions: The SPEAR Storage Ring Stanford University has a long history of involvement in the development and use of colliding-beam storage rings for particle physics research. The first such machine at Stanford was a small electron-electron collider, shaped like a figure eight, located on the main campus. A collaborative effort between physicists from Princeton and Stanford Universities, this project produced the first physics results ever obtained with the colliding-beam technique. The next in the succession of Stanford colliders was the SPEAR (Stanford Positron Electron Accelerating Ring) machine at SLAC, completed in 1972. SPEAR consists of a single ring some 80 meters in diameter, in which counter-rotating beams of electrons and positrons were circulated at energies up to 4 GeV . In terms of the rich harvest of discoveries it has yielded, it has been the most cost-effective machine ever built in the field of high energy physics. In 1990, the machine was dedicated to synchrotron radiation research Two particular SPEAR discoveries stand out. The first was the 1974 discovery of a particle called the J/psi that is made up of a combination of a quark and an antiquark of an entirely new kind. Before this discovery only three types of quarks were known, but the discovery of this new quark (called

Publishers: Chinese schools INTRODUCTION : Since the first group of Chinese set foot on America more than one hundred years ago, education of Chinese American developed from zero to that excellence of today. Many Chinese Americans contributed and keep on contributing to education of America. One hundred years ago, there almost were no schools for Chinese Americans. They didn't have right and chance to go to public school. Even some of them got chance, but there still were so many troubles and difficulties, such as discrimination, language, culture, etc. Chinese Americans tried their best to higher their statues in the society, first of all, from the education.Take a look at schools and Chinese Americans today. At schools, they are good and excellent. At society, they are successful and honorable at every aspect. Here our group will introduce some of them .

Extractions: SCIENCE Introduction Dr. Chen Ning Yang Dr. Tsung Dao Lee Dr. Steven Chu ... Samuel C.C. Ting INTRODUCTION All the way to the earlier time of this century, the most important and successful thing the Chinese have contributed to the U.S. society was the railroad. Now, in 1998, we can tell you that Chinese have done a lot besides the railroad building. One of the things we are so proud of is a number of famous scientists have discovered a lot to help our society. All these successful Chinese American scientists share one common point. It is that they are all proud to be Chinese and they have tried their best to contribute something to their second mother, that is America. Their inventions shocked the whole world. Let's hear some of their stories. Dr. Chen Ning Yang : Chen Ning Yang, Nobel Prize recipient and Director of the Theoretical Physics Department at State University of New York at Stony Book, is the 1992 Roy E. Moon Distinguished Lecturer in Science at Angelo State University. He is among the word's foremost theoretical physicists and mathematicians and is known for his work on elementary particles.
