Physical Review's Greatest Hits

Hans BetheHans Bethe, a pioneer of nuclear physics, was a featured speaker at the Tuesday evening reception celebrating the publication of the Physical Review-The First Hundred Years. Edited by Henry Stroke (New York University), the volume contains reprints of 200 seminal research papers in physics, accompanied by a CD-ROM with a total of 1,000 articles. Together they chronicle not only the growth of modern physics, but also the development of issues that have had a profound impact on the cultural and technological history of the 20th century: Quantum uncertainty, nuclear fission, medical imaging, and the invention of transistors, lasers, and probe microscopes.

APS encourages the redistribution of the materials included in this newspaper provided that attribution to the source is noted and the materials are not truncated or changed.
