Bohr, Niels


Danish physicist born in Copenhagen (1885-1962). Bohr's research was mainly theoretical in nature, including an investigation into the absorption of alpha rays and the structure of atoms. He combined Rutherford's atomic model with concepts from the Quantum Theory, developing the model of the atom that is still used today. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1922 for his work on atomic structure.
