• The Reines Lecture Series honors Frederick Reines, UCI's Founding Dean of Physical Sciences and co-recipient of the 1995 Nobel Prize for discovering the neutrino. The 2023 Reines Lecturer is Samuel Ting, winner of the 1976 Nobel Prize in Physics for the discovery of the charm quark.  Ting now leads the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer, the most sophisticated scientific instrument ever launched into space.  From its location on the International Space Station, AMS is transforming our understanding of cosmic particles in the universe.
