Title Professor of Physics
Harvey Newman (Sc. D, MIT 1974), The Marvin L. Goldberger Professor of Physics at Caltech, has been a faculty member since 1982. In 1973-4 he co-led the team that discovered the fourth quark flavor known as “charm”. He co-led the MARK J Collaboration that discovered the gluon, the carrier of the strong force in 1979. Since 1994 has been a member of CMS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN that discovered the Higgs boson at the LHC in 2012, and is now searching for additional Higgs particles, supersymmetry, extra dimensions, and other exotic new particles. Newman has had a leading role in originating, developing and operating state of the art international networks and collaborative systems serving the high energy physics community since 1982. He served on the IETF and the Technical Advisory Group that led to the NSFNet in 1985-6. He originated the worldwide LHC Computing Model in 1996. Between 1985 and 2015 he and his team developed and operated US LHCNet, a resilient state of the art virtualized transatlantic network serving the high energy physics community. Newman currently represents the physics community on the Internet2 Network Policy and Operations Program Advisory Group and the Open Daylight Advisory Board. He has led the science and network engineering teams that have defined the state of the art in long distance data transfers since 2002. Newman and his team are currently developing and demonstrating the next generation of software-defined global networks together with ESnet, SCinet, Fermilab, Yale, AmLight, FIU, LBNL, Argonne, Maryland, the State University of Sao Paulo, Internet2, SCinet, CERN, CENIC, PRP, and many other science and network research teams, with strong support from the U.S. Department of Energy and National Science Foundation, and in partnership with Intel, Ciena, Dell, 2CRSI, Arista, Brocade, Mellanox, Color Chip and other corporate partners.
