About this Item

Kramers-Heisenberg Formula-Stepping Stone to the New Quantum Mechanics Kramers, Hendrik Anthony (1894-1952) and Werner Heisenberg (1901-76). Über die Streuung von Strahlung durch Atome. Offprint from Zeitschrift für Physik 31 (1925). 681-708pp. Original printed wrappers. Light toning, but fine. First Edition, Offprint Issue. During his 1924 visit to Bohr's Institute for Theoretical Physics in Copenhagen, Heisenberg and Bohr's assistant H. A. Kramers worked together on the problem of atomic structure from the point of view of dispersion theory. "At first, this interest might appear strange because the problems of atomic structure, say, e.g., the calculation of the energy states of helium, would not seem to have any connection with the scattering of light by atoms, which was the principal concern of dispersion theory. However, Bohr and his collaborators had concluded that the problem of atomic structure could not be separated from the problem of the emission and absorption of radiation-and this could be considered as a problem of the dispersion of radiation" (Mehra & Rechenberg, Historical Development of Quantum Theory, 2, p. 170). Kramers and Heisenberg's joint paper on the dispersion of light by atoms contained the important Kramers-Heisenberg dispersion formula, an expression of the cross section for scattering of a photon by an atomic electron; among other things, the formula explained the phenomenon of inelastic scattering, anticipating the Raman effect. Heisenberg's work on this paper "was the final touch needed for [him] to fabricate quantum mechanics six months later" (Cassidy, Uncertainty: The Life and Science of Werner Heisenberg, p. 188).
