About this Item

First Edition. 1 leaf, iii, 56 pp; 5 figs. Original printed wrappers, large 8vo. Very Good. Scarce. "The ‘Compton Effect’ brought particle theory and wave theory of light into confrontation. Uninhibited by factions in European physics, John Slater asked why radiation cannot be both wave and particle. Slater took Bohr’s theory of harmonic vibration and proposed that atoms in ‘excited states’ emitted electromagnetic waves corresponding to transitions to lower states of ‘excitement’ than allowed for by Bohr’s theory, but that these electromagnetic waves are a peculiar kind which do not carry energy. Bohr himself adopted the term ‘virtual oscillation’ " (please ask for source). Bookseller Inventory # 08111
