Caption: Ernest Orlando Lawrence (1901-1958), US physicist, holding a prototype cyclotron, photographed circa 1931. Lawrence moved to the University of California at Berkeley, USA, in 1928. He invented the cyclotron in 1929 and developed it as a particle accelerator during the 1930s, winning the 1939 Nobel Prize in Physics for this work. In 1931, he founded the Radiation Laboratory, later the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory, and directed it until his death. During World War II, he was a leading member of the Manhattan Project that built the atom bomb, and was responsible for the electromagnetic separation of the uranium isotope U235 used in the bomb.
