        The positive electron.Lancaster, PA and New York, NY: for the American Physical Society by the American Institute of Physics, 1933. First edition.

      The very rare offprint Anderson's detailed account of the discovery of the positron, an elementary particle with the same mass as the electron but carrying a positive charge. This was the first example of a particle consisting of antimatter. Its existence had been predicted by P. A. M. Dirac three years earlier in his paper <i>Quantised Singularities in the Electromagnetic Field</i>. "The prediction and subsequent discovery of the positron rank among the great triumphs of modern physics" (Pais, <i>The Genius of Science</i>). Anderson shared the 1936 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his discovery of the positron."<br/><br/> Carl Anderson (1905-1991) worked as a graduate student under Robert Millikan at Caltech. After receiving his PhD in 1930 he stayed on at Caltech as a research fellow, working with Millikan on cosmic rays. "Millikan was convinced (inaccurately, as it turned out) that cosmic rays, a term that he himself coined in 1925 for the penetrating radiation bombarding Earth from all directions, were the birth pangs of new elements being formed out in space. In order to prove this hypothesis, he needed accurate measurements of their energies. He established three research efforts at Caltech in the new field, each using a different type of detector: one under Victor Neher using electroscopes, one under William Pickering using Geiger counters, and one under Anderson using cloud chambers in a magnetic field. Anderson's investigations paid off almost immediately, but not exactly as Millikan had foreseen...<br/><br/> "In the very first experiments in 1931 and 1932, Anderson saw the deflected tracks of as many positive as negative cosmic-ray particles. At this time, scientists had identified two elementary particles of matter: negatively charged electrons, and positively charged nuclei. Anderson and Millikan initially disagreed over whether the vivid tracks they observed in Anderson's much-improved cloud chamber were actually negative charges moving downward (Millikan's view) or positives moving upward (Anderson's view), but Anderson finally settled the question by placing a lead plate in the path of the particles. They would have more energy and therefore less curvature before passing through the plate than after, when they would be slower and therefore curve more. On 2 August 1932, these efforts were rewarded by a clear track left by a particle moving upward through the plate and curving to the left, meaning it was positively charged, but with a degree of ionization in the cloud chamber gas that indicated that the particle had the mass of an electron. This event marked the entirely unexpected discovery of the positive electron. <br/><br/> "The definitive results and famous photograph ("it's got to be a positive electron," Anderson later recalled thinking) appeared in <i>Physical Review</i> in 1933. The physics world expressed skepticism. However, a relativistic theory by the Cambridge University theorist Paul A. M. Dirac, published in 1930, had predicted the existence of a positive electron, and the evidence on Anderson's photographic plate was unimpeachable. Anderson's result was soon confirmed by Dirac's Cambridge colleagues Paul M. S. Blackett and Giuseppe P. S. Occhialini, who in a March 1933 paper in the <i>Proceedings of the Royal Society</i> reported similar results and proposed the mechanism of pair production to account for their existence. They postulated that when an energetic gamma ray was converted into matter, it would emit a negatively charged electron, balanced by Dirac's positively charged positron (as the positive electron came to be called). Asked once by an interviewer if Dirac's theory had influenced the direction of his research, Anderson replied, 'I don't know whether the existence of Dirac's work had any effect at all on the work I was doing. I was looking at the cloud chamber data and going by that'."
