The discovery of the Stark effect and its early theoretical explanations

After Pieter Zeeman had discovered in the fall of 1896 that an external magnetic field causes spectral lines to split in several components,1 the logical next step was to investigate whether an

The Stark effect in the Bohr-Sommerfeld theory and in Schrödinger's wave mechanics

The explanation of the first-order Stark effect in hydrogen by Epstein and Schwarzschild in 1916 was seen as a great success for the old quantum theory. Yet, it also revealed some serious limitations
