Blackett, one of the most brilliant and controversial physicists of the twentieth century. Nobel laureate, leader of operational research during the Second World War, scientific advisor to the British government, President of the Royal Society, member of the House of Lords, Blackett was also denounced as a Stalinist apologist for opposing American and British development of atomic weapons, subjected to FBI surveillance, and named as a fellow traveler on George Orwell's infamous list."--BOOK JACKET+-+23906592151354ocn049799324book20030.81Patrick Blackett : sailor, scientist, and socialistBiographyThis edited volume comprises a series of essays about Patrick Maynard Stewart Blackett, one of the greatest scientists of the 20th century, as well as a prominent figure in the Royal Navy and British politics. Blackett was battle-hardened in World War I and contributed directly to the Allied victory in World War II. Showing precocious ability in mechanical invention and benefiting from the Royal Navy's revolutionary education - the most advanced available in Britain in the early 1900s - Blackett had gone to war in 1914 aged 16. Escaping death and drowning, he saw action in two major battles, and spent several gruelling years on patrol in small ships. When the Royal Navy sent its young officers to be "civilized" at Cambridge after World War I, Blackett decided to stay on. Blackett would go on to become one of the most remarkable scientists of his generation, winning the Nobel Prize for physics in 1948 for his work on cloud chambers.; He also helped prepare Britain for war, working with Henry Tizard in the 1930s on the Committee for the Scientific Survey of Air Defence, which led to the installation of radar stations, and later developing the science of operational research, which helped defeat the U-boat menace. Although not a pacifist, he was strongly opposed both to nuclear weapons and to indiscriminate bombing, on grounds of morality and efficacy. Blackett would go on to advise Harold Wilson in Britain and Jawarharlal Nehru in India on defence and science policy. Throughout his life, Blackett would keep the commanding presence and habits of a naval officer, which helped him apply his influence+-+4268019625713ocn002530713book19760.66Lovell, BernardP.M.S.

Subjects discuss their family backgrounds, how they became interested in physics, their educations, people who influenced them, their careers including social influences on the conditions of research, and the state of atomic, nuclear, and quantum physics during the period in which they worked. Discussions of scientific matters relate to work that was done between approximately 1900 and 1930, with an emphasis on the discovery and interpretations of quantum mechanics in the 1920s.

Assisted Max Born with his treatise on quantum mechanics. Worked with Wolfgang Pauli in Zurich on quantum electrodynamics. Half-year in 1930 in Copenhagen working with Niels Bohr. Arrangement lasted until the war when Rosenfeld was called home. War years in Utrecht, Holland. Lived for the next 11 years (until 1958) in England. Topics discussed include 1931 Rome meeting; the reaction at Copenhagen when Bohr received Ernest Rutherford's letter announcing the discovery of the neutron; Werner Heisenberg's three papers on nuclear structure; a colloquium at Copenhagen on the Enrico Fermi experiments; attendance at the 1934 Kharkov conference; the large-scale exodus of German physicists because of the coming to power of Adolf Hitler; and Bohr's assistance in the emigration of refugees. He shows how physicists themselves recognized the significance of what they were doing, and uses of, for examples, the discovery of the neutron, the compound nucleus, the neutrino idea, the positron, the Hideki Yukawa prediction, and fission.
