Enrico Fermi. Portrait of the Italian-US nuclear physicist Enrico Fermi (1901-1954) with electronic equipment for the University of Chicago's particle accelerator. Fermi contributed to the Fermi- Dirac distribution, a central part of statistical physics. He won the 1938 Nobel Prize for Physics for his work on using neutrons to initiate nuclear reactions. He lived in the USA from 1938, building the first atomic reactor in 1942. He joined the American atomic bomb project in 1944. He then took a professorship at Chicago. Photographed in 1948.
