Pieter Zeeman

Dutch physicist
On the basis of Lorentz's theory, if we limit ourselves to a single spectral line, it suffices to assume that each atom (or molecule) contains a single moving electron.More Pieter Zeeman quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It was not simply out of a spirit of contradiction that I exposed a light source to magnetic forces. The idea came to me during an investigation of the effect discovered by Kerr on light reflected by magnetic mirrors.More Pieter Zeeman quotes [07/15/2011 03:07:23]
According to well-known electrodynamic laws, an electron moving in a magnetic field is acted upon by a force which runs perpendicular to the direction of motion of the electron and to the direction of the magnetic field, and whose magnitude is easily determined.More Pieter Zeeman quotes [07/15/2011 03:07:48]
Had we really succeeded therefore in altering the period of vibration, which Maxwell, as I have just noted, held to be impossible? Or was there some disturbing circumstances from one or more factors which distorted the result?More Pieter Zeeman quotes [07/15/2011 03:07:55]
I should point out, however, that at first some difficulty was experienced in observing the phenomena predicted by the theory, owing to the extreme smallness of the variations in the period of oscillation.More Pieter Zeeman quotes [07/15/2011 03:07:09]
