Caption: Otto Hahn (1879-1968), German chemist. Hahn studied chemistry at Marburg, doing postdoctoral work with Ramsay in London, then Rutherford in Canada. He returned to Germany in 1910. In the 1930s, with Lise Meitner, he worked on bombarding uranium nuclei with slow neutrons. They detected the production of barium rather than the radium expected. Hahn and Meitner (who had fled to Sweden) realised that the nucleus had been split, a discovery that resulted in the atomic bomb. Hahn published the results in 1938, receiving the 1944 Nobel Prize in Chemistry. The photograph has been signed by Hahn and dated 1950.
