Gorter, C. J. (Cornelis Jacobus), 1907-
Oral history interview with Cornelis Jacobus Gorter, 1962 November 13.
This interview was conducted as part of the Archives for the History of Quantum Physics project, 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: Felix Bloch, Ludwig Edvard Boltzmann, Hendrik Brugt Gerhard Casimir, Dirk Coster, Paul Ehrenfest, Adriaan Daniël Fokker, Samuel Abraham Goudsmit, George Hartwig de Hass, Werner Heisenberg, Petr Kapitsa, Willem Hendrik Keesom, Hendrik Antoon Lorentz, L. S. Ornstein, Wolfgang Pauli, Erwin Schrödinger, J. Tinbergen, Anton Edvard van Arkel, Pieter Zeeman, F. Zernike; Flask Club, Rijksuniversiteit te Groningen, Rijksuniversiteit te Leiden, and Teyler Foundation.
