The Rudolf Moessbauer Story : His Scientific Work and Its Impact on Science and History Hardback
Edited by Michael Kalvius, Paul Kienle
The "Rudolf Moessbauer Story" recounts the history of the discovery of the "Moessbauer Effect" in 1958 by Rudolf Moessbauer as a graduate student of Heinz Maier-Leibnitz for which he received the Nobel Prize in 1961 when he was 32 years old.
The development of numerous applications of the Moessbauer Effect in many fields of sciences , such as physics, chemistry, biology and medicine is reviewed by experts who contributed to this wide spread research.
In 1978 Moessbauer focused his research interest on a new field "Neutrino Oscillations" and later on the study of the properties of the neutrinos emitted by the sun.
