A letter from Ernest Rutherford to Ludwik Wertenstein, Concerning the Discovery of Positron
Languages of publication
In the years 1925–27, L. Wertenstein (1887–1945), a former student of Maria Skłodowska- -Curie, and the head of the Mirosław Kernbaum Radiological Laboratory in Warsaw during the interwar period, worked under E. Rutherford in the Cavendish Laboratory in Cambridge. Wertenstein was in close correspondence with Rutherford almost until his death in 1937. In one of the letters sent in 1933, Rutherford wrote about discovery of a new particle, called positive electron (discovered by Carl David Anderson in 1932), because he wanted to share his excitement about this great scientifi c event with Wertenstein. This letter is one of the proofs of a very friendly relationship between them.
