Aage Niels Bohr

Aage Niels Bohr (born in Copenhagen, Denmark on June 19, 1922) is the son of Margrethe and Niels Bohr. Growing up among physicists like Wolfgang Pauli and Werner Heisenberg, he became a successful nuclear physicist.

In 1948 Bohr worked with Ben Mottelson and Leo James Rainwater in Copenhagen to summarize the current knowledge of nuclear structure in a monograph. The first volume, Single-Particle Motion, appeared in 1969, and the second volume, Nuclear Deformations, in 1975. Their efforts on this project and their collaboration on nuclear theory led all three of them to receive the 1975 Nobel Prize in Physics, for research on the quantum mechanical description of nucleons orbiting inside a wobbly rotating droplet.
