Cavendish Laboratory Quotes (1 quote)
In 1945 J.A. Ratcliffe suggested that I [join his group at Cavendish Laboratory, Cambridge] to start an investigation of the radio emission from the Sun, which had recently been discovered accidentally with radar equipment. [B]oth Ratcliffe and Sir Lawrence Bragg, then Cavendish Professor, gave enormous support and encouragement to me. Braggs own work on X-ray crystallography involved techniques very similar to those we were developing for aperture synthesis, and he always showed a delighted interest in the way our work progressed.
