ABSTRACT
Perl, Martin Lewis (1927-) is an American physicist who discovered a subatomic particle called the tau lepton, the first known example of the lepton family of particles. In 1995, he received half of the Nobel Prize in physics for this work. The other half was awarded to American physicist Frederick Reines for detection of the neutrino, another type of lepton.
