Caption: Lauritsen and Millikan, US physicists, standing on top of the million-volt X-ray tube at the California Institute of Technology, USA. Danish-born US physicist Charles Christian Lauritsen (1892-1968) is at left. At right is US physicist Robert Andrews Millikan (1868-1953). Lauritsen, who worked at Caltech for his entire career, led the work in 1928 that built this high-voltage apparatus. Millikan, awarded the 1923 Nobel Prize in Physics, had invited Lauritsen to Caltech in 1926. Milikan was Chair of the Executive Council at Caltech from 1923. In 1932, he secured funding for a new laboratory for Lauritsen's high-voltage research.
