During the early s, physicist Donald Glaser noticed the track left by a stream of bubbles in a bottle of beer. Physicist Charles Townes began his research into the properties of light after designing radar systems during World War II. Working with his brother-in-law, Townes conceived the idea for amplifying light into an intense beam that could penetrate the hardest materials on Earth. The bubble chamber, invented by Donald Glaser, captured the imagination of scientist Luis Alvarez, who recognized its great value to physics and set out to improve its design.
He substituted hydrogen for ether, which produced a clearer track of speeding particles. In a decentralized market, self-interest guides consumers in the choices they make. A deep interest in social welfare drives the pioneering research of Daniel McFadden. His econometric methods for studying behavioral patterns in individual decision-making earned him the Nobel Prize.
The work has had far-reaching applications in such diverse areas as health insurance, financial markets, employment contracts and unemployment. Historically, cosmology had been essentially a theoretical field. Eric Betzig won the Nobel Prize in chemistry for developing super-resolution fluorescence microscopy, which allows scientists to look inside cells and visualize the pathways of individual molecules, including those involved in disease.
The regents call for an international competition to provide an architectural master plan for the university. The Faculty Club is dedicated in The stone facade is completed in Visit the Campanile centennial website to learn more about the history of the tower.
