Title: The Tools and Techniques of Particle Physics and Their Impact on Society

Speaker: Marcel Demarteau, Argonne National Laboratory

Abstract: Particle physics shares with other basic sciences the need to innovate, invent, and develop tools, techniques, and technologies to carry out its mission. This dedicated research and development has not only advanced the current state of technology for particle physics, but has also enabled basic scientific research and applications in numerous other areas. The history of particle physics contains many stories of invention that illustrate the interplay between different fields of science and society. This presentation will showcase some of the key tools, techniques, and technologies that connect particle physics to other science disciplines, to industry, and to society as a whole. Particle physics has a deep and sometimes unexpected reach into society. Its return on investment for society will be outlined.
