The Discovery of the π Meson, the Nuclear Emulsions, and the First “Strange” Particles

Chapter
Part of the Astronomers' Universe book series (ASTRONOM)

Abstract

In 1940, the Japan physicists Sin-Itiro Tomonaga (1906–1979) and Gentaro Araki pointed out that the positive and negative muons, at the time still identified with the Yukawa mesons, should behave differently when they are stopped in matter [1].

Keywords

Photographic Emulsion Alpha Particle Nuclear Force Nuclear Emulsion Strange Particle 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
