E. Rutherford in the Cavendish Laboratory Featured November Print

E. Rutherford in the Cavendish Laboratory

The New Zealand born physicist Sir Ernest Rutherford (1871-1937, right) seen in the Cavendish Laboratory at Cambridge University. Rutherford became director of this laboratory in 1919 and in the same year he announced one of his major discoveries. He showed that the structure of an atom could be changed (nuclear transmutation) by bombarding it with alpha particles. He was also involved (1934) in the first nuclear fusion reaction in which tritium was the end product of deuterium nuclei collisions. He is considered to be the father of nuclear physics and in 1908 he was awarded the Nobel Prize for chemistry

E. Rutherford and his wife at Trinity College

The New Zealand born physicist Sir Ernest Rutherford (1871-1937) and his wife Mary Newton at Trinity College in Cambridge (1921). He identified three types of radiations produced by radioactive decay which he called alpha, beta and gamma rays. He later proved that alpha rays were helium nuclei. In 1911 he elaborated a model in which the positive charge of the atom (protons) was concentrated in a very small region, the nucleus. He also showed that the structure of an atom could be changed (nuclear transmutation) by bombarding it with alpha particles. He is considered to be the father of nuclear physics and in 1908 he was awarded the Nobel Prize for chemistry
