SIMON VAN DER MEER
Signature of the CERN physicist, winner of a 1984 Nobel Prize
Signature: "S v d Meer", 5x3 card with ornate border. Dutch physicist Simon van der Meer (1925-2011) was affiliated with the European Centre for Nuclear Research, better known as CERN, near Geneva, Switzerland. With his CERN colleague Carlo Rubbia, he won the Nobel Prize in Physics (1984) "for their decisive contributions to the large project, which led to the discovery of the field particles W and Z, communicators of weak interaction." Working on various CERN machines, he developed a method, known as "stochastic cooling", for collecting and taming subatomic particles. This provided the key to Rubbia's plan to collide protons and antiprotons. Lightly creased. Ink note on verso shows through slightly at blank upper margin. Otherwise, fine condition.
