Welcome on our
interactive page dedicated to basic problems in experimental atomic
physics. This document is meant for high-school students, who are
interested in physics, university students of science departments,
physics teachers and all who would like to increase their knowledge
of this subject.
On this page one can
find full descriptions of experiments in world's microstructure
physics, which supplied the knowledge of atomic structure on the
beginning of the 20th century, i.e.
discovery of electron, atomic nucleus and calculation of an
elementary charge. One can also come across some other experiments
which led to detection of isotopes. These experiments are presented
from theoretical point of view (there are mathematics formulas and
transformations presented in clear way) as well as practical point
of view (exact descriptions of sets of instruments and of the way
of carrying out the experiments). Description of discoveries and
attainments in world's microstructure physic accomplished
throughout two thousand-year-old history of this science
development also takes place here. It starts with ideas of Democritus, the Greek philosopher,
going on to the thoughts of other atomic scientists of the 16th, 17th and 18th
centuries, up to the first half of the 19th
An acquaintance with our
Internet page is an easy and enjoyable way of introducing our
readers to the world of atom.
