Summary

A to Z of Physicists, Updated Edition focuses not only on the lives and personalities of those profiled, but also on their research and contributions to the field. A fascinating and important element of this work is the attention paid to the obstacles that minority physicists had to overcome to reach their personal and professional goals. Through incidents, quotations, and photographs, the entries portray something of the human face, which is often lost in books on science and scientists.

A to Z of Physicists, Updated Edition features more than 150 entries and 51 black-and-white photographs. Culturally inclusive and spanning the whole range of physicists from ancient times to the present day, this is an ideal resource for students and general readers interested in the history of physics or the significant aspects of the personal and professional lives of important physicists.

People covered include:

  • Archimedes (ca. 285–212 BCE)
  • Homi Jehangir Bhabha (1909–1966)
  • Pavel Alekseyevich Cherenkov (1904–1990)
  • Marie Curie (1867–1934)
  • George Gamow (1904–1968)
  • Tsung Dao Lee (1926–present)
  • Lise Meitner (1878–1968)
  • Yuval Ne'eman (1925–2006)
  • Johannes Stark (1874–1957)
  • Nikola Tesla (1856–1943)
  • Alessandro Volta (1745–1827)
