11° F). These new materials, which are ceramics, have a critical temperature between 90° and 120° K, another big breakthrough, since these temperatures are above the boiling point of liquid nitrogen, which is much cheaper and easier to maintain than liquid helium. These high-temperature superconductors lose their superconductive properties, though, at high current levels, a problem that has hampered their use in commercial applications. In the fall of 1955, researchers Emilio Segre and Owen Chamberlain succeeded in spotting the negatively charged antiproton, the proton's antimatter twin.

In the fall of 1955, researchers Emilio Segre and Owen Chamberlain succeeded in spotting the negatively charged antiproton, the proton's antimatter twin. It had been almost 25 years since Carl Anderson had found the electron's twin, the positron, on August 2, 1932. Protons were accelerated at the University of California at Berkeley in the newly built Bevatron and were hurtled at a copper target at an energy of six billion electron volts. ) 18 Emilio Segre (University of California Lawrence Radiation Laboratory, Courtesy AIP Emilio Segi-e Visual Archives) In the 1950s and 1960s, a huge swell of new subatomic particles flooded the scientific journals from the accelerators at Berkeley, Brookhaven (on Long Island, New York), Stanford, Fermilab (near Chicago) and CERN (in Geneva).

In the midst of this chaos a new and powerful tool was about to make its mark. So far, most of the discoveries had been made by cosmic ray physicists tracing particle tracks in their cloud chambers. But to answer the questions now being raised, particle physicists needed more detailed data than the cloud chambers alone could produce. That's where particle accelerators came in. These powerful machines could deliver uniform, controlled beams 15 LASERS: Q U A N T U M PHYSICS A T W O R K One of the stunning outgrowths of quantum mechanics are lasers, which have only been around in a workable form since Theodore Harold Maiman developed the first laser in 1960.
