from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Gail G. Hanson (born February 22, 1947 in Dayton , Ohio ) is an American experimental particle physicist .

Hanson received his PhD from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1973 . Then she was at the SLAC . From 1989 she was a professor at Indiana University .

In 1986 she became a Fellow of the American Physical Society . In 1996 she received the Panofsky Prize with Roy Schwitters . In the laudation it was emphasized that their contributions provided the first clear evidence that the hadron projection in jets after annihilation events in electron-positron colliders resulted from the fragmentation of quarks.

In 1995 she was a Guggenheim Fellow .

Hanson was the physics coordinator at the Large Electron-Positron Collider at CERN . She also contributed to the discovery of hadrons with b-quarks and the search for new particles. Hanson is now researching the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN and the development of a future μ + μ - collider.

She has been married since 1968 and has a son and a daughter.
