Selected works by Niels Bohr

Niels Bohr and Albert Einstein

Niels Bohr and Albert Einstein

Selected works by Niels Bohr. Like Søren Kierkegaard, Niels Bohr was born just around the corner from here, and feel like I should pay some kind of tribute to my deceased neighbors. Besides, Niels Bohr is one of the most interesting theoretical physicists. Bohr read Max Planck’s early quantum theory in 1908 and was instantly on the path to revolutionize the field. A few years later he proposed his atomic model, the model children all over the world are presented today in school.

He challenged Albert Einstein and made him change his mind about the nature of quantum physics. Einstein refused to accept quantum indeterminism, but Bohr’s interpretation of experiments such as the famous double-slit experiment convinced Einstein that God actually may be throwing dices. Niels Bohr received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1922 and the Danish king Frederick IX, gave him the Order of the Elephant.

Niels Bohr’s Coat of arms

Bohr designed his own coat of arms, a yin yan with his personal motto: contraria sunt complementa, “the opposites are complementary”. The chemical element bohrium (Bh), No. 107 on the periodic table of elements, is named after Niels Bohr.
