The rapport of the group was excellent, and ideas were freely exchanged.
As to the problems in the electron experiments, a path to a solution was given by Hans Bethe. In , while he was traveling by train to reach Schenectady from New York,  after giving a talk at the conference at Shelter Island on the subject, Bethe completed the first non-relativistic computation of the shift of the lines of the hydrogen atom as measured by Lamb and Retherford. The idea was simply to attach infinities to corrections at mass and charge that were actually fixed to a finite value by experiments.
In this way, the infinities get absorbed in those constants and yield a finite result in good agreement with experiments. This procedure was named renormalization. Feynman's mathematical technique, based on his diagrams , initially seemed very different from the field-theoretic, operator -based approach of Schwinger and Tomonaga, but Freeman Dyson later showed that the two approaches were equivalent.

Even though renormalization works very well in practice, Feynman was never entirely comfortable with its mathematical validity, even referring to renormalization as a "shell game" and "hocus pocus". Peter Higgs , Jeffrey Goldstone , and others, Sheldon Glashow , Steven Weinberg and Abdus Salam independently showed how the weak nuclear force and quantum electrodynamics could be merged into a single electroweak force.
Robert Noyce credited Kurt Lehovec for the principle of p—n junction isolation caused by the action of a biased p-n junction the diode as a key concept behind the integrated circuit. Noyce's chip solved many practical problems that Kilby's had not. Noyce's chip, made at Fairchild Semiconductor , was made of silicon , whereas Kilby's chip was made of germanium.
Philo Farnsworth developed the Farnsworth—Hirsch Fusor , or simply fusor, an apparatus designed by Farnsworth to create nuclear fusion. Unlike most controlled fusion systems, which slowly heat a magnetically confined plasma , the fusor injects high temperature ions directly into a reaction chamber, thereby avoiding a considerable amount of complexity. When the Farnsworth-Hirsch Fusor was first introduced to the fusion research world in the late s, the Fusor was the first device that could clearly demonstrate it was producing fusion reactions at all. Hopes at the time were high that it could be quickly developed into a practical power source.
However, as with other fusion experiments, development into a power source has proven difficult. Nevertheless, the fusor has since become a practical neutron source and is produced commercially for this role. The mirror image of an electromagnet produces a field with the opposite polarity. Thus the north and south poles of a magnet have the same symmetry as left and right. Prior to , it was believed that this symmetry was perfect, and that a technician would be unable to distinguish the north and south poles of a magnet except by reference to left and right.
In that year, T.

Lee and C. Yang predicted the nonconservation of parity in the weak interaction. To the surprise of many physicists, in C. Wu and collaborators at the U. National Bureau of Standards demonstrated that under suitable conditions for polarization of nuclei, the beta decay of cobalt preferentially releases electrons toward the south pole of an external magnetic field, and a somewhat higher number of gamma rays toward the north pole. As a result, the experimental apparatus does not behave comparably with its mirror image. The first step towards the Standard Model was Sheldon Glashow 's discovery, in , of a way to combine the electromagnetic and weak interactions.
The Higgs mechanism is believed to give rise to the masses of all the elementary particles in the Standard Model. This includes the masses of the W and Z bosons , and the masses of the fermions - i. After the neutral weak currents caused by Z boson exchange were discovered at CERN in ,     the electroweak theory became widely accepted and Glashow, Salam, and Weinberg shared the Nobel Prize in Physics for discovering it.
The W and Z bosons were discovered experimentally in , and their masses were found to be as the Standard Model predicted. The theory of the strong interaction , to which many contributed, acquired its modern form around —74, when experiments confirmed that the hadrons were composed of fractionally charged quarks. With the establishment of quantum chromodynamics in the s finalized a set of fundamental and exchange particles, which allowed for the establishment of a " standard model " based on the mathematics of gauge invariance , which successfully described all forces except for gravity, and which remains generally accepted within the domain to which it is designed to be applied.
The formulation of the unification of the electromagnetic and weak interactions in the standard model is due to Abdus Salam , Steven Weinberg and, subsequently, Sheldon Glashow. After the discovery, made at CERN , of the existence of neutral weak currents ,     mediated by the Z boson foreseen in the standard model, the physicists Salam, Glashow and Weinberg received the Nobel Prize in Physics for their electroweak theory.
Because of its success in explaining a wide variety of experimental results. There are a range of emerging energy technologies.

Also, the nanowire battery , a lithium-ion battery, was invented by a team led by Dr. Yi Cui in Reflecting the fundamental importance and applicability of Magnetic resonance imaging  in medicine, Paul Lauterbur of the University of Illinois at Urbana—Champaign and Sir Peter Mansfield of the University of Nottingham were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for their "discoveries concerning magnetic resonance imaging".
The Nobel citation acknowledged Lauterbur's insight of using magnetic field gradients to determine spatial localization , a discovery that allowed rapid acquisition of 2D images. Wireless electricity is a form of wireless energy transfer ,  the ability to provide electrical energy to remote objects without wires. Its aim is to reduce the dependence on batteries. Further applications for this technology include transmission of information —it would not interfere with radio waves and thus could be used as a cheap and efficient communication device without requiring a license or a government permit.
A Grand Unified Theory GUT is a model in particle physics in which, at high energy, the electromagnetic force is merged with the other two gauge interactions of the Standard Model , the weak and strong nuclear forces.
Many candidates have been proposed, but none is directly supported by experimental evidence. GUTs are often seen as intermediate steps towards a " Theory of Everything " TOE , a putative theory of theoretical physics that fully explains and links together all known physical phenomena, and, ideally, has predictive power for the outcome of any experiment that could be carried out in principle.
No such theory has yet been accepted by the physics community. The magnetic monopole  in the quantum theory of magnetic charge started with a paper by the physicist Paul A. Dirac in In some theoretical models , magnetic monopoles are unlikely to be observed, because they are too massive to be created in particle accelerators , and also too rare in the Universe to enter a particle detector with much probability.
After more than twenty years of intensive research, the origin of high-temperature superconductivity is still not clear, but it seems that instead of electron-phonon attraction mechanisms , as in conventional superconductivity, one is dealing with genuine electronic mechanisms e.
