The article presents a profile of Dr. Donald A. Glaser, the 1960 Nobel Prize winner for Physics. He graduated from the Case Institute of Technology in Cleveland in 1946 and obtained his Ph.D. from the California Institute of Technology in 1950. He started his bubble chamber experiments while he was a physics instructor at the University of Michigan in 1952. His bubble chamber allows the study of sub-atomic and elementary particles, particularly their lifetime, electric charge, spin, and mass.
