Yifang Wang: high energy physics in China

2016-08-10

In a recent interview with National Science Review in Beijing, Prof. Yifang Wang, Director of the Institute of High Energy Physics explained how the Daya Bay Experiment on neutrino oscillation not only addressed the frontier problem in particle physics, but also harnessed the talents and existing technology in Chinese physics community.

This achievement, Wang reckoned, will not be an exception in Chinese high energy physics, when appropriate funding and organization for big science projects could be efficiently realized in the future.

Wang also discussed the next step of neutrino exploration, future direction of Chinese high energy physics, importance in developing high energy physics, multilevel collaboration needed, and promising future.
