Albert Baez #HispanicHeritageMonth

Preview lightbox adafruit NationalHispanic Heritage Month 2018 blog

In honor of National Hispanic Heritage Month, today we are celebrating the inspirational life and work of Mexican born physicist Albert Baez.

When Baez passed away in 2007 at the age of 94, his obituary was featured in The New York Times:

Born in Puebla, Mexico, and reared in Brooklyn, Dr. Baez earned a bachelor’s degree in mathematics from Drew University, a master’s in math from Syracuse University and a doctorate in physics from Stanford University. He taught physics at several universities, including Stanford.

In 1948, while he was still a graduate student at Stanford, Mr. Baez and Paul Kirkpatrick developed the X-ray reflection microscope, which could examine living cells. The imaging technique is still used, particularly in astronomy to take X-ray pictures of galaxies and in medicine.

His family said he switched from experimental physics during the cold war to a career in physics education because of his pacifist beliefs as a Quaker.
