Biography Born on February 12 th 1918 in New York Became professional physicist at the age of sixteen In 1939 he received his Ph.D. degree National Research at University of California, Berkeley He taught elementary physics to engineering students at Purdue University.
Biography Became Associate Professor at Harvard University. Then became a full Professor A year later married Clarice Carrol of Boston Died on July 16 th, 1994 At the age 76
Contributions Began to think of nuclear physics as language of electrical engineering First approached electromagnetic radar problems as a nuclear physicist Being conscious of the large microwave powers available Began to think about electron accelerators Led to questions of radiation by electrons in magnetic fields
Contributions Later on he worked in a number of directions His primary focus was theoretical questions He was mainly pleased by an anticipation Two different neutrinos associated Also respectively, with the electron and the moon
