Rabi. Scientist and Citizen PDF

John-S Rigden

This is a welcome reissue with a new preface ofJohn Rigdens stellar biography of I. I. Rabi, one of themost influential physicists of the twentieth century.Rabis discovery of the magnetic resonance methodwon him the Nobel Prize in 1944 and stimulatedresearch leading to, among other things, refinementsin quantum electro dynamics, refined molecular beammethods, radio astronomy with the hydrogen 21-cmline, atomic clocks, and solid state masers.A steadily fascinating account of an exemplary life. Rigden gives the lay reader a clear idea of what the physicist is seeing, what leads him to such strange thoughts. His account of The Matter of J. Robert Oppenheimer gives more useful information in a few pages than I could find in the near thousand-page transcript of the hearing.Howard Nemerov, Pulitzer Prize-winning poet and Professor of English, Washington UniversityThe twentieth century [was] a time of high adventure in physics. It is no wonder that Rabi, with his ebullience and complex genius and wisdom found his profession wonderful. As Rigden demonstrates in this complete and very good book, physics was wonderful for Rabi and Rabi was wonderful for physics.R. R. Wilson, Science
