Georges Temmer and Ben Mottelson in Japan, 1960s. US nuclear physicist Georges M. Temmer (1922-1997, left) and US-born Danish nuclear physicist Ben Roy Mottelson (born 1926, right) in a ryokan (Japanese inn) while attending the Tokyo International Conference on Nuclear Physics in 1967. Mottelson spent most of his career in Copenhagen, Denmark, working at the Institute for Theoretical Physics (later renamed the Niels Bohr Institute). Mottleson worked with Niels Bohr's son Aage Bohr on comparing theories and geometries of atomic nuclei with experimental results. These theories had been developed by Aage Bohr and James Rainwater. For this work, Rainwater, Bohr and Mottelson were jointly awarded the 1975 Nobel Prize in Physics. Temmer was a professor of nuclear physics at Rutgers University for 29 years.
