Oral history interview with Louis de Broglie, 1963 January 7 and 14.


Oral history interview with Louis de Broglie, 1963 January 7 and 14.

Part of the Archives for the History of Quantum Physics oral history collection, which includes tapes and transcripts of oral history interviews conducted with ca. 100 atomic and quantum physicists. Subjects discuss their family backgrounds, how they became interested in physics, their educations, people who influenced them, their careers including social influences on the conditions of research, and the state of atomic, nuclear, and quantum physics during the period in which they worked. Discussions of scientific matters relate to work that was done between approximately 1900 and 1930, with an emphasis on the discovery and interpretations of quantum mechanics in the 1920s. Also prominently mentioned are: David Bohm, Emile Bourgeois, Léon Brillouin, Marcel Brillouin, Maurice de Broglie, Charles Galton Darwin, Alexandre Dauvillier, Deslandres, Th. de Donder, Albert Einstein, John Ellis, Victor Henri, Jacobi, Langevin, Paul Langevin, Mainfroid, Jean Perrin, Henri Poincaré, Erwin Schrödinger, Manne Siegbahn; Acadèmie des Sciences, Solvay Congress (1911), Solvay Congress (1927), and Sorbonne.
