Melvin Schwartz and the discovery of the muon neutrino featured at OSTI
Discoveries that unleashed new opportunities for research into the innermost structure and dynamics of matter are now featured at the OSTI DOE R&D Accomplishments website. Melvin Schwartz was the co-winner of the 1988 Nobel Prize in Physics "for the neutrino beam method and the demonstration of the doublet structure of the leptons through the discovery of the muon neutrino." Read about his award-winning work, done at Brookhaven National Laboratory, and find resources with additional information. DOE R&D Accomplishments is a central forum for information about significant outcomes of past DOE R&D widely recognized as remarkable advances in science.
