Caption: Nevill Francis Mott (1905-1996), British physicist, holding a molecular model. Mott studied at Cambridge University, England, becoming a fellow and lecturer in 1930. From 1933 he worked at Bristol University, England, as professor of physics, then returned to Cambridge in 1954. His work included theories explaining the effect of light on photographs in cases of latent images, and the chemistry of metals and non-metals. The Mott transition between metals and non-metals is named after him, as is the concept of a Mott insulator. He shared the 1977 Nobel Prize in Physics. Mott was knighted in 1962, and made a Companion of Honour in 1995.
