Martin Lewis Perl was a noted American physicist who discovered the subatomic particle, tau lepton, thus helping better understand elementary physics. For his epochal work in particle physics, he was decorated with the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1995. Interestingly, today known as the prodigious child of physics, Perl wasn’t interested in pursuing research as his profession initially. Though being a bright student, he feared if he could make a living out of research in physics and opted for chemical engineering instead for a ‘brighter’ prospect. However, fate had something else in store for this born-genius who took to studying physics while working as a chemical engineer. Soon, he gained his PhD in the subject. Before taking up research work at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC), Perl spent eight years at the University of Michigan. His best bit however came at SLAC where he discovered tau particle. It took several years of experiment to establish the existence of a new particle. His work which was earlier panned by the scientific society later gained acceptance and was eventually honoured with a Nobel Prize.
