by ALVAREZ, Luis W. (1911-1988); Felix BLOCH (1905-1983).
Lancaster, PA:: American Physical Society, 1940., 1940. In: The Physical Review, Second Series, Volume 57, Jan. 1, – June 15, 1940. pp. 111-122. 4to. (10.5 x 8 inches; 263 x 200mm). [whole volume]. x, 1,218 pp. Illus., index. Full green gilt-stamped buckram. Library bookplate. Very good. Alvarez, American experimental physicist, inventor, and professor at UC Berkeley, was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1968, "For his decisive contributions to elementary particle physics, in particular the discovery of a large number of resonant states, made possible through his development of the technique of using hydrogen bubble chambers and data analysis." / Felix Bloch (1905 – 1983), Swiss physicist, schooled at the Cantonal Gymnasium in Zurich and at the Eidgenossische Technische Hochschule (ETHZ), then at Zurich =, where he studied under Peter Debye, Hermann Weyl, Erwin Schrodinger (Bloch was a classmate of John von Neumann), Wolfgang Pauli, Niels Bohr, and also Enrico Fermi, then for reasons of Hitler's Germany and being Jewish, he immigrated to the US and worked at both Stanford University and UC Berkeley. He and Edward Mills Purcell were each awarded the 1952 Nobel Prize for "their development of new ways and methods for nuclear magnetic precision measurements."
