Caption: Igor Yevgenyevich Tamm (1895-1971), Soviet nuclear physicist and mathematician. Tamm shared the 1958 Nobel Prize in Physics with Cherenkov and Frank. Tamm's contribution was the interpretation of the Cherenkov effect, where high-energy particles moving through water may exceed the velocity of light in that medium, producing a "wake" of light called Cherenkov radiation. Tamm also studied crystallo-optics, the theory of relativity, quantum mechanics, and thermonuclear reactions. He was a Member of the USSR Academy of Sciences. Photographed in 1969, in Moscow, Russia.
