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 [07/15/2011 03:07:02]
Now all oscillatory movements of such an electron can be conceived of as being split up into force, and two circular oscillations perpendicular to this direction rotating in opposite directions.More Pieter Zeeman quotes [07/15/2011 03:07:46]
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]
The magnetic cleavage of the spectral lines is dependent on the size of the charge of the electron, or, more accurately, on the ratio between the mass and the charge of the electron.More Pieter Zeeman quotes [07/15/2011 03:07:11]
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]
