Gail G. Hanson
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.
