James Rainwater (1917-1986), US physicist, born Leo James Rainwater. Rainwater studied at the California Institute of Technology, USA, and was awarded his PhD at Columbia University, New York, USA, for his work on particle physics. He worked on the Manhattan Project, which developed the atom bomb during World War II. He was professor at Columbia University from 1952. His theoretical work after the war concerned the shape of atomic nuclei, in particular explaining the deformation of atomic nuclei from a spherical shape. It was this work that led to him, Aage Bohr, and Ben Mottelson, sharing the 1975 Nobel Prize in Physics.
