Pieter Zeeman QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
A beam of compound light is no longer reflected by the lined surface in the ordinary way; instead each special kind of light follows its own path.
Quotation of Pieter Zeeman
According to well-known electrodynamic laws, an electron moving in a magnetic field is acted upon by a force which runs perpendicular to the direction of motion of the electron and to the direction of the magnetic field, and whose magnitude is easily determined.
Quotation of Pieter Zeeman
Faraday himself called his discovery the magnetization of light and the illumination of magnetic lines of force.
Quotation of Pieter Zeeman
Had we really succeeded therefore in altering the period of vibration, which Maxwell, as I have just noted, held to be impossible? Or was there some disturbing circumstances from one or more factors which distorted the result?
Quotation of Pieter Zeeman
I count myself fortunate to be able to contribute to this work; and the great interest which the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences has shown in my work and the recognition that it has paid to my past successes, convince me that I am not on the wrong track.
Quotation of Pieter Zeeman
I should point out, however, that at first some difficulty was experienced in observing the phenomena predicted by the theory, owing to the extreme smallness of the variations in the period of oscillation.
Quotation of Pieter Zeeman
I was in fact able to verify experimentally some conclusions which followed from the theory of optical and electrical phenomena of my esteemed teacher and friend Professor Lorentz.
Quotation of Pieter Zeeman
In August, 1896, I exposed the sodium flame to large magnetic forces by placing it between the poles of a strong electromagnet.
Quotation of Pieter Zeeman
In the absence of a magnetic field the period of all these oscillations is the same. But as soon as the electron is exposed to the effect of a magnetic field, its motion changes.
Quotation of Pieter Zeeman
It was natural that, soon after I had succeeded in splitting up lines, I should also study how the different lines behave in this respect.
Quotation of Pieter Zeeman
It was not simply out of a spirit of contradiction that I exposed a light source to magnetic forces. The idea came to me during an investigation of the effect discovered by Kerr on light reflected by magnetic mirrors.
Quotation of Pieter Zeeman
Moreover, photography has made it possible to fix these images and now provides us with a permanent record of each observed spectrum, which can be measured out at any time.
Quotation of Pieter Zeeman
Most physics institutes possess this polished metal mirror with a very large number of grooves, say 50,000 over a width of 10 cm scratched on by means of a diamond.
Quotation of Pieter Zeeman
Nature gives us all, including Prof. Lorentz, surprises. It was very quickly found that there are many exceptions to the rule of splitting of the lines only into triplets.
Quotation of Pieter Zeeman
Now all oscillatory movements of such an electron can be conceived of as being split up into force, and two circular oscillations perpendicular to this direction rotating in opposite directions.
Quotation of Pieter Zeeman
Now if this electron is displaced from its equilibrium position, a force that is directly proportional to the displacement restores it like a pendulum to its position of rest.
Quotation of Pieter Zeeman
Of course the light source must be very restricted for the large number of beams corresponding to the various kinds of light to appear separately.
Quotation of Pieter Zeeman
On the basis of Lorentz's theory, if we limit ourselves to a single spectral line, it suffices to assume that each atom (or molecule) contains a single moving electron.
Quotation of Pieter Zeeman
The last experiment recorded in Faraday's laboratory notebook and ostensibly the last in his life, gives an indication of the extent to which his spirit was still occupied with the boundary region of possible phenomena.
Quotation of Pieter Zeeman
The magnetic cleavage of the spectral lines is dependent on the size of the charge of the electron, or, more accurately, on the ratio between the mass and the charge of the electron.
Quotation of Pieter Zeeman
The rotation of the polarization plane is extraordinarily small in all gases, thus also in sodium vapour.
Quotation of Pieter Zeeman
The wonderful discovery of the connection between light and magnetism, which he made in 1845, was the reward for an investigation carried out with indefatigable patience and tenacity.
Quotation of Pieter Zeeman
We studied the light source in the direction of the magnetic force, we perforated the poles of the magnet; but even in the direction of the magnetic lines of force we found that our result was confirmed.
Quotation of Pieter Zeeman
When we study the well-known Bunsen sodium flame by means of Rowland's grating, we see a spectrum consisting mainly of two separate sharp yellow lines, which in our grating lie about I mm from each other.
