Owen Chamberlain, the Antiproton, and Polarized Targets
Owen Chamberlain, winner of the 1959 Nobel Prize in physics, shared in the discovery of the antiproton in 1955. But his scientific interests were broad, and by 1960, he had embarked on developing polarized proton targets for use in high-energy physics scattering experiments; and in the 1970s he turned to the emerging subject of high-energy heavy-ion collisions.
