Emilio Gino Segrè--early atomic physics
One of those physicists of relative unknown status during the infancy of atomic physics. He is credited with the discovery of the first artificially synthesized chemical element not occurring in nature--technetium as well as astatine and plutonium-239. And along with Owen Chamberlain discovered antiprotons.
