Michael Faraday –In early work he discovered the concept of radioactive half life proved that radioactivity involved the transmutation of one chemical element to another and also differentiated and named alpha and beta radiation This work was done at McGill University in Canada It is the basis for the Nobel Prize in Chemistry he was awarded in for his investigations into the disintegration of the elements and the chemistry of radioactive substancesRutherford moved in to the Victoria University of Manchester today University of Manchester in the UK where he and Thomas Royds proved that alpha radiation is helium ions Rutherford performed his most famous work after he became a Nobel laureate In although he could not prove that it was positive or negative he theorized that atoms have their charge concentrated in a very small nucleus and thereby pioneered the Rutherford model of the atom through his discovery and interpretation of Rutherford scattering in his gold foil experiment He is widely credited with first splitting the atom in in a nuclear reaction between nitrogen and alpha particles in which he also discovered and named the protonRutherford became Director of the.
