Alexander Langsdorf Jr., 83, a nuclear physicist who helped develop the atomic bomb, died Friday at Elmhurst Memorial Hospital of complications from hip surgery.

A native of St. Louis, Mr. Langsdorf came to Chicago in 1943 to work with scientist Enrico Fermi on the Manhattan Project, which resulted in the development of the bomb that was dropped on two cities in Japan during World War II.

He later regretted the use of the bomb. In 1982, at a Chicago ceremony commemorating the bombing, Mr. Langsdorf presented a replica of a nuclear bomb to area officials for the Chicago Peace Museum.

"The bomb works in a chain reaction," he said at the presentation ceremony. "I believe attitudes of people are the result of chain reaction also. And I hope that chain reaction carries the message we're making here today to everyone. That bomb must never be used again."

Mr. Langsdorf was a senior physicist at the Argonne National Laboratory for the bulk of his career. He left there in 1977 and became an editor of the Journal of Applied Physics Letters.

Mr. Langsdorf is also responsible for several other developments. While a student at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, he invented the Continuous Cloud Chamber for tracking cosmic rays. He also designed the pile oscillator, an apparatus for measuring neutron cross sections, which is in the permanent collection of the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C., as well as the method for mass production of beryllium nitride for making Carbon 14, which is used to determine the age of archeological finds.

Mr. Langsdorf's expertise was often in demand. In 1959, he spent a year at the British Atomic Energy Research Establishment in Harwell, England, and was a visiting professor at Tohoku University in Sendai, Japan, in 1975.

Mr. Langsdorf is survived by his wife, Martyl, an artist; two daughters, Suzanne Hasha and Alexandra Shoemaker; and four grandchildren. A memorial service will be held at a later date.
