Samuel C.C. Ting Biographical . I was born on 27 January 1936 in Ann Arbor, Michigan, the first of three children of Kuan Hai Ting, a professor of engineering, and Tsun-Ying Wang, a professor of psychology. My parents had hoped that I would be born in China, but as I was born prematurely while they were visiting the United States, by accident of birth I became an American citizen.

Samuel C.C. Ting, in full Samuel Chad Chung Ting, (born Jan. 27, 1936, Ann Arbor, Mich., U.S.), American physicist who shared in the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1976 for his discovery of a new subatomic particle, the J/psi particle. The son of a Chinese college professor who was studying in the United States when Ting was born, he was raised in mainland China and Taiwan and at the age of 20 immigrated to the United States.
Samuel Chao Chung Ting is an American physicist of Chinese ethnicity who won the Nobel Prize for his discovery of ‘J’ particle. His parents, who were university professors in China, had come to the U.S. on a visit, intending to return home before his birth. But he was born premature and thus became an American citizen by accident.

In this interview, David Zierler, Oral Historian for AIP, interviews Samuel C.C. Ting, Thomas D. Cabot Professor of Physics at MIT and Guest Professor of the Director General of CERN. Ting describes his long-term, unpaid affiliations with CERN and DESY, he recounts his childhood in Michigan, and he describes the opportunities that led to his parents to pursue graduate degrees at the University of Michigan.

Samuel C.C. Ting (at left, with his research team) was credited for finding what he called the "J" particle, the same particle as the "psi" found at nearly the same time at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center by a group led by Burton Richter. The particle is now known as the J/psi.
