Amsterdam : Koninklijke Nederlandse Akademie van Wetenschappen, 2007. Hardcover. vi,664 pp. (History of science and scholarship in the Netherlands, 10). English translation : Heike Kamerlingh Onnes : een biografie : de man van het absolute nulpunt. - Amsterdam : Bakker, 2005. - Proefschrift Universiteit Leiden. Condition : new. - In 1908, Heike Kamerlingh Onnes (1853-1926) liquefied helium for the first time, briefly rendering his Dutch laboratory 'the coldest place on earth'. Freezing physics is the first book to tell the story of Leiden University's famed cryogenics laboratory and the man behind it, whose scientific accomplishments earned him the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1913. The central question in this book is how Kamerlingh Onnes was able to succeed so brilliantly in developing his cryogenics laboratory - undoubtedly an exceptional feat in terms of its scale and its almost industrial approach in the Netherlands of the last quarter of the nineteenth century. A related question is what determined his success - his abilities as a scientist, his organisational talent, or his personality? This fascinating portrayal of Kamerlingh Onnes, the man and the scientist, traces his storied career from his first experiments with helium to his later work that opened up unexplored territories of extreme cold, magnetism, and thermodynamics - and cleared the path for the eventual discovery of superconductivity in 1911. Condition : new copy. ISBN 9789069845197[KEYWORDS: HISTORY OF SCIENCE, physics. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 40708

Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

In 1908, Heike Kamerlingh Onnes (1853–1926) liquefied helium for the first time, briefly rendering his Dutch laboratory “the coldest place on earth.” Freezing Physics is the first book to tell the story of Leiden University’s famed cryogenics laboratory and the man behind it, whose scientific accomplishments earned him the Nobel Prize for Physics.
This fascinating portrayal of Kamerlingh Onnes traces his storied career from his first experiments with helium to his later work that opened up unexplored territories of extreme cold, magnetism, and thermodynamics—and cleared the path for the eventual discovery of superconductivity in 1911. Dirk van Delft here illuminates the scientific acuity, managerial talent, and visionary character that equipped Kamerlingh Onnes to almost single-handedly change the course of the history of physics.
