The Bohr Atom
Lecture no. 18 from the course: The Joy of Science
Taught by Professor Robert M. Hazen | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
Learn why Rutherford's concept of the atom was physically impossible, and what Niels Bohr proposed as an alternative. Bohr's model helped to explain many of the properties of light-matter interactions. Lasers make special use of the "quantum" interactions between light and matter.
