James Watson Cronin (born September 29, 1931) is an American nuclear physicist. Cronin and co-researcher Val Logsdon Fitch were awarded the 1980 Nobel Prize in Physics for a 1964 experiment that proved that certain subatomic reactions are not the same as to fundamental symmetry principles (called CP violation).[1]
