|Personal Fact of Burton Richter|
Burton Richter is an American scientist who shared the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1976 for his work on the discovery of a new subatomic particle psi. He was born in New York City, where his father was employed in the capacity of a worker in the textile industry and he attended the Far Rockaway High School in the same city. His school education was completed at Mercersburg Academy, an exclusive boarding school located in Mercersburg, Pennsylvania.
His university education was completed at the elite Massachusetts Institute of Technology and it was here that he developed an interest in quantum electrodynamics. The better facilities available at Stanford University made him quit Massachusetts Institute of Technology and join the former, where he worked at the High Energy Physics Laboratory.
He worked with some of the leading scientists of his time and other than his Nobel Prize winning work, he helped in creating a colliding beam machine that was the first machine of the kind. Burton also served as the head of the Stanford Linear Accelerator Centre for fifteen years during which the particular department made plenty of progress.
