Caption: Atomic and nuclear physicists. 1932 group portrait of physicists and chemists who contributed during the early 20th century to the understanding of atomic and nuclear structure. Seated from left are: Sir James Chadwick, the discoverer of the neutron (1932), Hans Geiger, who invented a counter for charged nuclear particles, and (at centre) Sir Ernest Rutherford, considered the father of nuclear physics. Standing from left are: Gyorgy Hevesy, who introduced the use of radioactive tracers to biological systems, Mrs Geiger, Lise Meitner and Otto Hahn. The last two obtained the first nuclear fission (1939).
