Also in this volume: Born, Max (1882-1970). Elektronentheorie des Natürlichen optischen Drehungs vermögens isotroper und anisotroper Flüssigkeiten, pp. 175-240. Approximate Eng. translation of title: "Electron theory of the natural optical rotation ability of isotropic and anisotropic liquids". Max Born (1882-1970) was a German physicist and mathematician who was instrumental in the development of quantum mechanics. He also made contributions to solid-state physics and optics, as well as supervised a number of notable physicists in the 1920s and 1930s. Born won the 1954 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his fundamental research in quantum mechanics, especially in the statistical interpretation of the wave function." In 1919, a chance meeting with Fritz Haber (1868-1934) led to the discussion of how an ionic compound is formed when a metal reacts with a halogen - a process now known as the Born-Haber cycle (Wikipedia).Book Id: 50342
