Profiles the first woman to become a tenured professor in Harvard University's Physics Department, with insights into her research on subatomic particles.

The Generation of Current
Princeton, NJ: Films for the Humanities & Sciences, c1987
1 VHS vidoecassette (12 min)
Thin, freely moving iron needles are placed on a panel between the north and south poles of a powerful magnet; the magnetic field is clearly apparent. When a copper wire breaks the lines of magnetic force, an electric current is generated in the wire. Model cars illustrate that when a magnet is placed so that a revolving coil interrupts the magnetic field, a current is generated.
