Uhlenbeck, George Eugene

Uhlenbeck, George Eugene

▪ Dutch-American physicist
born Dec. 6, 1900, Batavia, Java [now Jakarta, Indon.]
died Oct. 31, 1988, Boulder, Colo., U.S.

      Dutch-American physicist who, with Samuel A. Goudsmit (Goudsmit, Samuel Abraham), proposed the concept of electron spin.

      In 1925, while working on his Ph.D. at the University of Leiden, Neth. (1927), he and Goudsmit put forth their idea of electron spin after ascertaining that electrons rotate about an axis. Uhlenbeck joined the physics department at the University of Michigan, U.S., in 1927, returned to The Netherlands, as professor at the State University at Utrecht, and then became full professor at the University of Michigan in 1939. From 1943 to 1945 he worked at the Radiation Laboratory of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and in the postwar period he worked in The Netherlands. In 1960 he was appointed professor and physicist at the Rockefeller Medical Research Center at the State University of New York, New York City, becoming professor emeritus in 1974. He wrote many papers on atomic structure, quantum mechanics, kinetic theory of matter, and nuclear physics.
