During World War I, he took part in the battles of the Falkland Islands and Jutland and designed a revolutionary new gunsight. A. in 1921. At Cambridge’s Cavendish Laboratory, he began working under ERNEST RUTHERFORD on cloud chambers. In 1924, he married Constanza Bayon, with whom he had a son and a daughter, and in the same year he obtained the first photos of an atomic transmutation, which was of nitrogen into an oxygen isotope. In 1919, he explained the transmutation of elements from experiments in which nitrogen was bombarded with alpha particles.

In 1919, he explained the transmutation of elements from experiments in which nitrogen was bombarded with alpha particles. The oxygen atoms and protons produced were detected by scintillations in a screen of zinc sulfide. He used a cloud chamber to photograph the tracks formed by these particles, taking more than 20,000 pictures and recording about 400,000 tracks.

The probability) of the quantum electrodynamic scattering of positrons by electrons, what is now called Bhabha scattering. He was also the chief architect of India’s atomic energy program, a seminal figure in the development of a world-class cadre of Indian scientists after World War II, and a prominent advocate for the cause of peaceful uses of atomic energy. He was born on October 30, 1909, in Bombay, into a wealthy Parsi family with a long tradition of learning and service to the country. The Bhabha family cultivated interests in the fine arts, particularly Western classical music and painting, all of which became an essential part of Homi Bhabha’s quest for a vivid, rich existence.
