Quantum physics was born in 1900, when #Planck found a formula for the spectrum of the black-body radiation. But it was #Einstein who realized the revolutionary character of the idea of #quantization (1905). After the groundbreaking discovery by #Bohr, in 1913, that the idea of quantization allows one to render an account of the spectrum of the hydrogen atom, quantum mechanics developed as a heuristic science. In 1923, a French man came up with a new idea to explain the theory of atomic structures. He initiated a series of progress that would put the formalism of quantum mechanics on a solid ground, by introducing the concept of #matter_waves. That French man is our "scientist of the day" today.

It's death anniversary of #LouisVictorPierreRaymonddeBroglie, the man who made groundbreaking contributions to quantum theory - -

(Scientist of the Day - 19 March)

The first works of Louis de Broglie (early 1920s) were performed in the laboratory of his older brother #Maurice and dealt with the features of the photoelectric effect and the properties of x-rays. In his 1923-24 doctoral dissertation, he made a bold assertion. Considering Einstein's relationship of ....
