Born: August 12,1887, Vienne Austria Died: January 4, 1961, Vienna, Austria Schrodinger suffered tuberculosis which was the cause of his death. Schrodinger was married but had many affairs throughout his life. Usually with his co-workers wives. (Erwin Scrodinger Personal Facts)
THE ELECTRON CLOUD In 1926 Shrodinger took Bohr’s model one step further. He used mathematical equations to describe the likelihood of finding an electron in a certain position. This model is known as the quantum model of an atom. (Modern Atomic Theory: Models)
WAVES? Formulated a wave-equation that accurately gave the energy levels of atoms. Schrodinger used his findings to help give us today the basis for quantum theory.This later won Schrodinger ½ of the Nobel Prize in 1933. Which he shared with Paul A. M. Dirac. (Erwin Schrodinger- Facts)
SCHRODINGER’S EQUATION Schrodinger published the equations in a paper about wave mechanics. The paper describes how the quantum state of a physical system changes overtime. The paper was celebrated as one of the most important achievements of the 20 th Century.(Important Scientists, Ewrin Schrodinger)
SCHRODINGER AND HEISENBURG Schrodinger and Werner Heisenburg both worked on the equation. Both men mathematically determined regions in which electrons would be most likely found. However neither of the two officially worked as partners on the equation. (Historical Perspective)
