Caption: Bruno Pontecorvo (1913-1993), Italian physicist. Pontecorvo studied at the University of Rome, working with Enrico Fermi. He was working in France when World War II broke out. He fled to Spain and then the USA. He then worked in Canada and the UK before, in 1950, voluntarily defecting to the USSR. He worked in what is now called the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research, in Dubna, near Moscow. He worked on particle physics, especially neutrinos and muons. The Pontecorvo Prize in particle physics is named for him. The subsequent experimental development (by others) of several of Pontecorvo's ideas have led to the award of at least three Nobel Prizes. Photographed in 1985, in Dubna, in the Moscow region of Russia.
