Homi Jehangir Bhabha, Indian nuclear physicist (Mumbai 30 October 1909 - Mont Blanc, France 24 January 1966)
Derived a correct expression for positron scattering probability by electrons known as Bhabha scattering
The Scattering of positrons by electrons with exchange on Dirac's theory of the positron. Proc. Roy. Soc. London 154 A: 195, 1936.
Explained with W. Heitler that showers were formed by the cascade production of gamma rays and positive and negative electron pairs

Suggested the term orthochronous for Lorentz transformations which don't change the sign of time coordinate

Identified muons as penetrating compound in the cosmic rays.
Proposed the term meson (with N. Kemner and M.H. L. Pryce)
