https://baas.aas.org/pub/alexander-dalgarno-1928-2015 In 1947 Sir Harrie Massey invited him to work for a PhD in Physics and suggested that Alex investigate collisions of metastable helium atoms in helium gas to determine the cross sections for excitation transfer. Richard Buckingham was Alex’s immediate supervisor
