The Spectra of Helium and Hydrogen

  title={The Spectra of Helium and Hydrogen},
  author={N. Bohr},
RECENTLY Prof. Fowler (Month. Not. Roy. Astr. Soc, December, 1912) has observed a number of new lines by passing a condensed discharge through mixtures of hydrogen and helium. Some of these lines coincide closely with lines of the series observed by Pickering in the spectrum of the star ζ Puppis, and attributed to hydrogen in consequence of its simple numerical relation to the ordinary Balmer series. Other lines coincide closely with the series predicted by Rydberg and denoted as the principal… Expand
100 Years of Atomic Theory
One hundred years ago, Niels Bohr's pioneering paper on the electronic structure of the hydrogen atom revolutionized atomic theory and became one of the most influential of the 20th century. Expand
Semiclassical study on Proton and Neutron
Starting from the existing semiclassical studies on hydrogenoid atoms, we propose a similar intuitive exercise for the three-body quark systems corresponding to protons and neutrons. In the frame ofExpand
The isotope effect: Prediction, discussion, and discovery
The precise position of a spectral line emitted by an atomic system depends on the mass of the atomic nucleus and is therefore different for isotopes belonging to the same element. The possibleExpand
Historical magic in old quantum theory?
Two successes of old quantum theory are particularly notable: Bohr’s prediction of the spectral lines of ionised helium, and Sommerfeld’s prediction of the fine-structure of the hydrogen spectralExpand
The analysis of starlight: some comments on the development of stellar spectroscopy, 1815-1965
Abstract The principal achievements in stellar spectroscopy from the time of Fraunhofer until 1965 are summarised in this article, under the headings spectral classification, stellar radialExpand
The Bohr–de Broglie Approach in Physics: The Dual Nature of Matter
The results of the deterministic Bohr-type rotating neutrino model presented in this book, taken together with the spectacular success of the deterministic Bohr model of the H atom, seem to simplyExpand
Frontiers in spectroscopy.

A brief survey providing a map of the various frontiers approached today in spectroscopy, followed by an exemplary discussion of one particular frontier towards the spectroscopic detection of symmetry violations in fundamental physics. Expand
Gravity, Special Relativity, and the Strong Force: A Bohr-Einstein-de Broglie Model for the Formation of Hadrons
This book shows that the strong interaction forces, which keep hadrons and nuclei together, are relativistic gravitational forces exerted between very small particles in the mass range of neutrinos.Expand
Fundamentals of Electronic Spectroscopy
The basic principles of electronic spectroscopy of atoms and molecules in the gas phase are presented. In the first part, the elementary concepts necessary to describe the electronic structure ofExpand
Resisting the Bohr Atom: The Early British Opposition
When Niels Bohr’s theory of atomic structure appeared in the summer and fall of 1913, it quickly attracted attention among British physicists. While some of the attention was supportive, others wasExpand
