Signed by Pais. / Perkins was a British physicist and professor emeritus at the University of Oxford, known for his discoveries in the field of particle physics. BIOGRAPHICAL NOTES: Born in 1925, Don Perkins studied physics at Imperial College, University of London, where he earned his undergraduate degree in 1945 and earned his doctorate in 1948. He moved to the University of Bristol in 1949. After a research stay in 1955/56 at the Lawrence Radiation Laboratory of the University of California, Berkeley (LBL), Perkins in 1956 became a reader in Bristol. He used his sabbatical years 1963/64, 1976/77 and 1983/84 for research stays at CERN in Geneva. Perkins was appointed Professor of Elementary Particle Physics at Oxford University in 1965, where he taught and researched until his retirement in 1998. Don Perkins is one of the pioneers of cosmic ray experiments using emulsion technology. He discovered in 1947 the negative ?-meson on exposed films. Its ? decay events are shown in many textbooks of elementary particle physics. At LBL, Perkin's experiments turned to particle accelerators. He researched K-mesons and antiproton-proton annihilation reactions. As early as 1961 he used pions in cancer therapy. At CERN, Perkins undertook high-energy neutrino scattering experiments. He is a co-discoverer of the weak neutral current in the famous Gargamelle experiment, which has demonstrated elastic neutrino-electron scattering for the first time. Using deep-inelastic neutrino-nucleon scattering, he detected quarks and antiquarks in the nucleon, determined quark and gluon densities in the nucleon and quantitatively tested quantum chromodynamics for the first time. He was involved in the design of the electron proton storage ring HERA at DESY. From 1982 Perkins devoted himself to experiments on proton decay. He found the first evidence of anomalies in the atmospheric neutrino flow, which were later interpreted as neutrino oscillations. He analyzed data on atmospheric and solar neutrinos in terms of oscillation and mixing schemes. Don Perkins has been honored and honored many times. He is an honorary doctor of the Universities of Sheffield and Bristol and a Fellow of the Royal Society, London. In recognition of his many original research in elementary particle physics, he was awarded the Guthrie Medal of the Institute of Physics in 1979, the Holweck Medal of the Institut Francais de Physique in 1992, the Royal Medal of the Royal Society in 1997, and the European Physics High Energy Physics Prize in 2001 Company awarded. He has been invited to lecture and honorary lectures at universities in Toronto, Seattle, Chicago, Hawaii and Victoria / Canada. (Inventory #: S13341)
