Caption: Julian Schwinger. Historical portrait of the US physicist Julian Seymour Schwinger (1918-1994). He is famous for unifying the fundamental theories of electromagnetism and quantum mechanics in a theory of quantum electrodynamics (QED). He developed QED by reformulating earlier theoretical work by Dirac and others to remove problems with infinite values being predicted. He also made changes to account for Einstein's Special Theory of Relativity. In 1946 he became one of the youngest-ever professors at Harvard University, USA. He shared the 1965 Nobel Prize for Physics with Feynman and Tomonaga who independently developed QED theory. His later work involved the study of synchrotron radiation.
