Segrè, Emilio Gino

(1905–89)
   Italian physicist and Nobel laureate, 1959. During the 30s Segrè helped Enrico Fermi in his research into the neutron bombardment of uranium atoms. Later he bombarded molybdenum (element number 42) with deuterons and was able to locate small quantities of element number 43, which he labelled ‘technetium’, the first new element artificially produced. In 1938, as a result of the racial legislation in Italy, Segrè emigrated to the United States and worked at the University of California. He shared the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1959 for the discovery of antiprotons.
