The Spectra of Helium and Hydrogen

  title={The Spectra of Helium and Hydrogen},
  author={A. Fowler},
I AM glad to have elicited this interesting communication from Dr. Bohr, and I readily admit that the more exact form of his equation given above is in close accordance with the observations of the lines in question. It will be seen that the equation now introduces a modified value for the Rydberg. series “constant,” 109675, in addition to its multiplication by 4 for the particular series under consideration. The constant 22779, which is deduced from the wavelengths of the lines is the… Expand

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
Models and methodologies in current theoretical high-energy physics
A case study of the development of quantum field theory and of S-matrix theory, from their inceptions to the present, is presented and Lakatos' scheme provides a reasonable overall description and a plausible assessment of the relative value of these two programs in terms of progressive and degenerating problem shifts.

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
Falsification and the Methodology of Scientific Research Programmes
For centuries knowledge meant proven knowledge — proven either by the power of the intellect or by the evidence of the senses. Wisdom and intellectual integrity demanded that one must desist fromExpand
