Part of the The Subnuclear Series book series (SUS, volume 25)


Martin Deutsch discovered Positronium, the fundamental “Atom” of quantum electrodynamics in 1951. He initiated and developed the study of the magnetic lens-type spectrometer in 1941, one of the standard instruments of nuclear physics. He promoted the uses of scintillation detectors for nuclear radiations; thus greatly improving the timing and efficiency of the measurements of nuclear radiations (see fig. 1 and fig. 2).
