Bloch, Felix, 1905-
Oral history interview with Felix Bloch, 1964 May 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 circa 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: Reinhold Baer, Karl Beck, Niels Henrik David Bohr, Max Born, Peter Josef William Debye, Paul Adrien Maurice Dirac, Albert Einstein, Enrico Fermi, Adriaan Daniël Fokker, Marcel Grossmann, Arthur Haas, Werner Heisenberg, Walter Heitler, Friedrich Hund, Hendrik Anthony Kramers, Fritz London, Wolfgang Pauli, Max Planck, Léon Rosenfeld, Erwin Schrödinger, Karl Seiler, Arnold Sommerfeld, John Von Neumann, Pierre Weiss; University of Copenhagen, Universität Göttingen, University of Leipzig, Stanford University, Teyler Foundation, and Zurich Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule.
