Caption: Kerst and Yukawa, particle physicists. At left is US physicist Donald William Kerst (1911-1993). At right is Japanese physicist Hideki Yukawa (1907-1981). They are standing by the 300 MeV Betatron particle accelerator, in the Betatron Building at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaigne, Urbana, Illinois, USA. Kerst worked on the Manhattan Project in World War II, but is best known for developing the betatron in 1940, a cyclotron (type of particle accelerator) used to accelerate electrons. Yukawa was awarded the 1949 Nobel Prize in Physics for predicting the existence of a family of elementary particles called mesons.Restrictions:
