Simon van der Meer (born November 24, 1925, The Hague) is a Dutch accelerator physicist who invented the concept of stochastic cooling in colliders, making possible the discovery of the W particle and the Z particle at the CERN 500 Gev proton-antiproton collider by the UA-1 experimental collaboration led by Carlo Rubbia. As a result van der Meer and Rubbia shared the 1984 Nobel Prize in Physics. Van der Meer was at CERN from 1956 until his retirement in 1990.
