The first meson was discovered in 1936. For many years physicists believed this to be the pi meson (now pion) predicted by Yukawa in 1935. Then in 1947, a series of four papers led to the realization that there are in fact two mesons (the pion and the muon) and the one that had been discovered in 1936 is the muon. In the first paper in early 1947, three Italian physicists, Conversi, Pancini and Piccioni, noted unusual results in the decay of cosmic ray mesons. A few months later, Fermi, Teller, Weisskopf, and John.....

Precision spectroscopy is the measurement of the spectrum of atoms and molecules using lasers. American physicist John Lewis “Jan” Hall (born 1934) and German physicist Theodor Wolfgang Hänsch (born 1941) were co-developers of the “frequency comb technique,” a method for fine-tuning laser outputs to measure spectrum frequencies with great precision. Hall and Hansch shared one half of the 2005 Nobel Prize in Physics “for contributions to the development of laser-based precision spectroscopy, including the optical frequency comb technique,” which is.....
