Jan Fischer describes the life and work of the Czech physicist, born in 1905, who made important contributions to nuclear physics in the 1930s-1940s.
Fred Hoyle, who died in 2001, is best known as a cosmologist. But, as Simon Mitton relates, his career in physics began with the weak interaction and moved on to a crucial discovery in nuclear physics...
The World Year of Physics is upon us, designated Einstein Year in the UK. Brian Foster considers the complex web of connections between two of the famous scientist's main passions - music and physics.
Sergei Vavilov, whose research led to the discovery of Cherenkov radiation, contributed greatly to establishing a strong base for physics in the USSR, especially during the difficult years of the 1930...
The 2004 Nobel Prize for Physics has been awarded to David Gross, David Politzer and Frank Wilczek for their "discovery of asymptotic freedom in the theory of the strong interaction".
Richard (Dick) Dalitz has spent more than 50 years in the study of elementary particles, the quark model and quantum chromodynamics. Here he talks to Melanie O'Byrne.
The International Europhysics Conference on High Energy Physics of the European Physical Society (HEP-EPS) provided a superb synergy between physics, history and music, as Felicitas Pauss reports.
Lucien Montanet, one of the closest colleagues of Charles Peyrou, who died on 6 April, recalls Peyrou's major contributions to physics and to research at CERN.
