(1926 - )
Donald Glaser was born in 1926 in Cleveland, OH. Mapping the movements of high-speed atomic particles was imprecise until this physicist developed an innovative approach to nuclear tracking. My modifying the way in which conventional cloud chambers trace the paths of particles, he invented the bubble chamber which is today the basic tool for plotting subatomic motion. His work won a 1960 Nobel Prize for Physics.
