Photo: Luis (left) and Walter (right) Alvarez. Luis Alvarez was a physicist with wide ranging interests. At the University of Chicago, he took a class called Advanced Experimental Physics: Light, and later claimed, "It was love at first sight." He graduated in 1932 and stayed at Chicago for his graduate work. He married, had two kids, and moved to Berkeley, where he worked with Ernest Lawrence and stayed until 1978. Alvarez's colleagues sometimes called him the "prize wild idea man" because of the huge range of his activities. He did all kinds of research into the atomic nucleus, light, electrons, radar, and so forth. In 1943 he was part of the Manhattan Project in Los Alamos and developed a detonating device for the atomic bomb. He was on board the bomber Enola Gay when it dropped the bomb on Hiroshima. Alvarez was shocked and sickened by what he saw, but because the war ended so soon afterwards, he never expressed doubts about the bomb's use. In fact, he was one of few scientists who had worked on the bomb who felt the U.S. should continue weapons development and make a hydrogen bomb. He continued to do varied work in high energy physics and in 1968, received the Nobel Prize. In 1965 Alvarez took his physics expertise on an archeological expedition. A U.S.-Egyptian team was trying to find hidden chambers in the Giza pyramid in Egypt by using subatomic particles to calculate the pyramid's density. They didn't find any chambers, but this began Alvarez's work with his son Walter, a geology professor at Berkeley. Together they developed a theory in 1980 that a

Alvarez, Luis W. (1911-1988)

American physicist who studied short-lived resonance particles in bubble chambers This work won him the 1968 Nobel Prize in physics. Alvarez was also the first to notice a layer of iridium-enriched clay at the Cretacious-Tertiary (K-T) boundary. This suggested that the impact of a meteor (which are rich in Ir) may have been responsible for the extinction of the dinosaurs, a thesis which has now met with general acceptance.

Home FAQ Press Contact Us ... Nobel Prize in Physics Luis Alvarez - Biography
Luis W. Alvarez was born in San Francisco, Calif., on June 13, 1911. He received his B.Sc. from the University of Chicago in 1932, a M.Sc. in 1934, and his Ph.D. in 1936. Dr. Alvarez joined the Radiation Laboratory of the University of California, where he is now a professor, as a research fellow in 1936. He was on leave at the Radiation Laboratory of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology from 1940 to 1943, at the Metallurgical Laboratory of the University of Chicago in 1943-1944, and at the Los Alamos Laboratory of the Manhattan District from 1944 to 1945.
Early in his scientific career, Dr. Alvarez worked concurrently in the fields of optics and cosmic rays. He is co-discoverer of the "East-West effect" in cosmic rays. For several years he concentrated his work in the field of nuclear physics. In 1937 he gave the first experimental demonstration of the existence of the phenomenon of

Luis Walter Alvarez
At 18 years old Luis studied chemistry and math at the University of Chicago. Wanting to excel in his field, he chose physics, the subject he loved the most. Doing experiments was his favorite thing, and he invented new ways to measure, observe and test the physical laws of nature. He built machines as well. One of his firsts was called a Geiger Counter (invented by Hans Geiger) which measures radiation. In 1932, he received his Bachelor of Science Degree from the University of Chicago. In 1934, he then received his Master of Science Degree. Lastly, he received his Ph.D. in 1936. In the same year, he joined the Radiation Laboratory of the University of California where he is currently a professor. Alvarez met Ernest Lawrence, one of the world's leading nuclear scientists, who invited him to work in his Radiation Laboratory at the University of California at Berkeley. Alvarez's job was to help run the cyclotron, a machine that studies atoms. Alvarez helped make many new important discoveries about atoms. In 1940, as a result of World War II, Alvarez and a group of scientists built a radar system to help guide airplanes through 'fog or darkness. In this system, a radio signal bounces off a lost plane and back to the sender of the signal, who then guides the plane safely to the ground.

Magnetic monopole
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation search A magnetic monopole is a hypothetical particle in particle physics that is a magnet with only one magnetic pole (see Maxwell's equations for more on magnetic poles). In more technical terms, a magnetic monopole would have a net "magnetic charge". Modern interest in the concept stems from particle theories , notably the grand unification and superstring theories, which predict their existence. The magnetic monopole was first hypothesized by Pierre Curie in 1894, but the quantum theory of magnetic charge started with a paper by the physicist Paul A.M. Dirac in 1931. In this paper, Dirac showed that the existence of magnetic monopoles was consistent with Maxwell's equations only if electric charges are quantized , which is always observed. Since then, several systematic monopole searches have been performed. Experiments in 1975 and 1982 produced candidate events that were initially interpreted as monopoles, but are now regarded as inconclusive. The detection of magnetic monopoles is an open problem in experimental physics. Within theoretical physics, some modern approaches predict the existence of magnetic monopoles.
