Paul W. Levy was an American physicist.
After receiving his undergraduate degree from the University of Chicago in 1943, Levy joined the Manhattan Project at the University’s Metallurgical Laboratory. He and his wife, Phyllis O. Levy, both worked at Chicago and at Oak Ridge during the project.
After the war, Levy remained at Oak Ridge until 1948. While completing his Ph.D, Levy began working in the Physics Department at Brookhaven National Laboratory in 1952. Originally a nuclear physicist, he switched to solid-state physics and authored numerous papers. He studied radiation damage on nonmetals, and also researched thermoluminescence.
