About this Item

pp. 49-56; 417-421. [whole volumes]: Two volumes. 231 x 160 mm. 8vo. iv, 478; pp. Illus., tables. Navy blue cloth, gilt-stamped spine. Ex library Carnegie Institution of Washington Mount Wilson Observatory with call number gilt stamped on spine and library blind-stamp on front free end paper. Clean copy. FINE. RARE. FIRST EDITION. The Stern-Gerlach experiment received wide attention and established Stern's rank among physicists. The work of Stern and Walther Gerlach, a colleague at the Institute for Experimental Physics in Frankfurt, proved the reality of space quantization and in measuring the magnetic moment of the silver atom. Stern and Gerlach reported this work in five papers, including the two offered here. DSB, XII, pp. 40-43. "The Bohr-Sommerfeld theory accounted for the fine structure of the hydrogen spectrum, and space quantization was experimentally confirmed by Otto Stern and Walther Gerlach in 1921." (Sime). "In both the older and the newer quantum theories the proper rotation or spin of the electron has played a decisive role, and it has been pointed out as a special merit of the Dirac theory that, automatically and without supplementary hypotheses, it affords an expression for the spin of the electron and for its magnetic moment. The existence of the magnetic moment of the atom was shown in a simple and clear manner by Otto Stern and W. Gerlach. At the same time their experiment gave direct confirmation of a related consequence of the quantum theory, namely that, owing to its own magnetic moment, an atom, when it is placed between the poles of a magnet, will orient itself in a few definite positions." Nobel, the man and his prizes, p. 499. DSB, XII, pp. 40-43; Nobel, the man and his prizes, p. 499; Sime, Lise Meitner, p. 100. Bookseller Inventory # S0379
