Bohr’s Model of the Hydrogen Atom

  • Hermann Haken
  • Hans Christoph Wolf


In the following chapters we shall take up the detailed analysis of the spectra of atoms in every wavelength region. The most important sources of information about the electronic structure and composition of atoms are spectra in the visible, infrared, ultraviolet, x-ray, microwave and radio frequency ranges. Figure 8.1 summarises these spectral regions.
