Shull, Clifford Glenwood (1915-2001) was an American physicist. He won the 1994 Nobel Prize in physics for developing the technique of using neutrons (uncharged subatomic particles) to probe the atomic structure of solids. This technique is called neutron scattering or neutron diffraction. Shull shared the prize with the Canadian physicist Bertram Neville Brockhouse, who independently did related research.
