1918 – Feynman – bio

Richard Feynman was born in 1918 in New York, USA and was a physicist. He was one of the founders of quantum electrodynamics and invented a shorthand to show particle interactions now known as “Feynman diagrams”. In 1965, he won a Nobel prize for his work in quantum electrodynamics, along with Julian Schwinger and Sin-Itiro Tomonaga. He has been credited with creating the concept of nanotechnology.
