  Simon van der Meer Summary
Simon van der Meer was born in The Hague, the Netherlands, on November 24, 1925.
Simon van der Meer (born November 24, 1925) is a Dutch accelerator physicist who invented the concept of stochastic cooling in colliders, making possible the discovery of the W particle and the Z particle at the CERN 500 Gev proton-antiproton collider by the UA-1 experimental collaboration led by Carlo Rubbia.
Van der Meer was at CERN from 1956 until his retirement in 1990.

 Simon van der Meer
Simon van der Meer (born November 24, 1925) is a Dutch physicist.
As a result, he obtained a Nobel Prize in Physics in 1984 with Carlo Rubbia "for their decisive contributions to the large project, which led to the discovery of the field particles W and Z, communicators of weak interaction.."
It is striking that Van der Meer's cousin Tjalling C. Koopmans won a Nobel Prize in Economics in 1975.

Unlike the Rubbia-van der Meer discovery, which has no immediate practical application, Merrifield's development of a simple peptide-synthesis process has "become a basic tool that all laboratories use," said Professor Bengt Lindberg of the Swedish Academy.
Rubbia, caught up in an air traffic controllers strike, learned that he and van der Meer had won the Nobel Prize while he was trying to catch a plane to Trieste, Italy.
The particles were not found, however, until Rubbia and van der Meer discovered them last year in a particle accelerator they built for the European nuclear research organization, CERN, in Geneva.

 Carlo Rubbia - Biography & Achievements
Carlo Rubbia, who was born in Italy, was awarded this prestigious prize along with Simon van der Meer in 1984 for his contributions, which led to the discovery of W and Z particles.
This momentous discovery fetched Professor Rubbia and Simon van der Meer the Nobel Prize in Physics.
In 1984 Carlo Rubbia and Simon Van Der Meer were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics for the discovery of the subatomic particles W and Z. These particles convey the weak force, one of the four fundamental forces of nature.

 Simon van der Meer   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-02)
Dutch physical engineer who in 1984, with Carlo Rubbia, received the Nobel Prize for Physics for his contribution to the discovery of the massive, short-lived subatomic particles designated W and Z that were crucial to the unified electroweak theory posited in the 1970s by Steven Weinberg, Abdus Salam, and Sheldon Glashow.
After receiving a degree in physical engineering from the Higher Technical School in Delft, Neth., in 1952, van der Meer worked for the Philips Company.
Van der Meer, in response to this problem, devised a mechanism that would monitor the particle scattering at a particular point on the ring and would trigger a device on the opposite side of the ring to modify the electric fields in such a way as to keep the particles on course.

 Carlo Rubbia Summary
The most striking exception to that general rule occurred in 1984 when Carlo Rubbia and Simon van der Meer were awarded the Prize for physics for their discovery of the W and Z bosons only a year earlier.
By employing the technique of stochastic cooling invented by van der Meer, the once unlikely experiment became a reality, and the search for the W and Z bosons was initiated in 1983.
For this accomplishment, he and co-worker Simon van der Meer were awarded the 1984 Nobel Prize in physics.

 W and Z bosons
There exist three varieties of W bosons: positively-charged types, negatively-charged (antiparticles of each other) types, and the Z boson, which possesses no charge whatsoever.
The discovery of the W Boson occurred in 1983, during a series of SPS accelerator-based experiments being conducted by Carlo Rubbia and Simon Van der Meer[?], working at the CERN laboratory.
For their efforts, they were awarded the Nobel Prize, one year later.
