  • Niels Bohr (1885-1962): The Problem of Surface Tension

    Niels Bohr (1885-1962): The Problem of Surface Tension
    Niels Bohr won a prize for creating a method for measuring the surface tension of water using oscillating fluid jets. His paper was published in the "Transactions of the Royal Society."

  • Niels Bohr (1885-1962): The Bohr Model

    Niels Bohr (1885-1962): The Bohr Model
    During his stay at Cambridge University, Niels Bohr began his study of the structure of atoms. He borrowed ideas from Max Planck’s Quantum Theory and created a model that included a set nucleus with orbiting electrons that would jump from a higher orbit to a lower one.

  • Niels Bohr (1885-1962): The Principle of Complementarity

    Niels Bohr (1885-1962): The Principle of Complementarity
    Bohr began writing a series of essays discussing his concept of complementarity in regards to quantum mechanics. This principle explains how two unlike theories can somehow compilment each other.

  • Niels Bohr (1885-1962): Open World.

    Niels Bohr (1885-1962): Open World.
    After WWII, Bohr became an advocate for peace and sent a letter to the United Nations. He called for a world that was free to share technology and information. The International Atomic Energy Agency was then created in response.
