History of physics at the Cavendish

The Cavendish Laboratory has an exceptionally distinguished history. Participants may visit the museum during the conference. This has exhibits relating to James Clerk Maxwell, Lord Rayleigh, J.J. Thomson, Lord Rutherford, C.T.R. Wilson, Cockroft and Walton, the Braggs, James Chadwick, Crick and Watson and others. At 3:00 on Wednesday July 17 there will be a lecture by Professor Malcolm Longair (Head of the Physics Department) on the history of physics at the Cavendish. This will be followed by a reception to mark the opening of J.J. Thomson Avenue.
