Crucial Experiments in Quantum Physics.
Trigg, George L.
The six experiments included in this monography are titled Blackbody Radiation, Collision of Electrons with Atoms, The Photoelectric Effect, Magnetic Properties of Atoms, The Scattering of X-Rays, and Diffraction of Electrons by a Crystal Lattice. The discussion provides historical background by giving description of the original experiments and events which contributed to them. Many original figures are given and quotes from original accounts are presented. An attempt was made to present the essentials of the method of each experiment and the difficulties of execution and interpretation encountered. (PR)
