Transcript of Werner Heisenberg

Verner Heisenberg by Mark Panas in Würzburg, Germany Born December 5th, 1901 He went to school in Munich He was an accomplished pianist and had hay fever. and earned his Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Munich in 1923. Heisenberg was very interested in theoretical physics. Fun facts! He published several papers while in school on quantum mechanics. He developed a theory called matrix mechanics that laid the basis for modern atomic theory. In November 1905 he began working under Niels Bohr. In 1927 he developed the uncertainty principle while studying the electron! This stated that a particle's position and momentum cannot be measured precisely at the same time; as the precision of one measurement goes up, the other goes down. In 1927 he became the youngest professor in Germany. He taught at the University of Leipzig while continuing research on ferromagnetism, quantum electrodynamics, cosmic radiation, and nuclear physics. In 1935 He was ousted from his position by the Nazi regime. He was appointed to direct Germany's atomic bomb project, which he worked on for five and a half years. After the war, he returned to his teaching position and worked to rebuild West German science. Died February 1st, 1976 survived by his wife and 7 children Dilbert!
