From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Arie Bodek (born 1947) is an American experimental physicist specializing in elementary particles.

Bodek was awarded the 2004 American Physical Society W.K.H. Panofsky Prize in Experimental Particle Physics "for his broad, sustained, and insightful contributions to elucidating the structure of the nucleon, using a wide variety of probes, tools, and methods at many laboratories." He received his B.S. in Physics (1968) from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and his Ph.D. in Physics (1972) also from MIT. For his Ph.D., he worked under Profs. Henry Kendall and Jerome Friedman on the MIT-SLAC deep inelastic electron scattering experiments that provided evidence for the quark structure of matter; His doctoral thesis provided some of the evidence of the quark's existence (See Bibliographic Resources--Development of the Quark) that was the basis for the 1990 Nobel Prize in Physics. The 1990 Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to Friedman, Kendall, and Taylor for these experiments.

He was a postdoctoral associate at MIT (1972-74) and a Robert E. Millikan Fellow at Caltech (1974-77). Bodek joined the University of Rochester as an Assistant Professor of Physics in 1977. He was promoted to Associate Professor in 1980 and to Professor in 1987. Prof. Bodek was appointed as an Alfred P. Sloan Fellow (1979-81); NSF-JSPS Fellow, KEK, Japan (1986); and Fellow of the American Physical Society (1985). He served as a project director at the Department of Energy (1990-91), was Associate Chair (1995-98) and then Chair of the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Rochester (1998-2007). He is on the editorial board of the European Physics Journal C. In 2005, he was named George E. Pake Professor of physics at the University of Rochester.

Bodek's research is in the physics of W's, Z's, Dileptons and searches for Higgs Bosons (CDF at Fermilab and CMS at the Large Hadron Collider); neutrino physics and neutrino oscillations (CCFR/ NuTeV/ MINERVA)at Fermilab); deep inelastic scattering and nucleon structure (JUPITER at Jefferson Lab); quark distributions in nuclei. In the area of instrumentation, Prof. Bodek's research is in the area of scintillating tile/optical-fiber hadron calorimeters. He served as the co-spokesperson of the Jefferson Lab JUPITER program (experiment E04-001). In CDF, his group has the CDF plug upgrade hadron calorimeter. For CMS, his group has constructed the HCAL hadron calorimeter. Both calorimeters were constructed using tile-fiber technology.
