Niels Bohr

Niels Henrik David Bohr (7 October 1885 18 November 1962) was a Danish physicist who made fundamental contributions to understanding atomic structure(popularly know as Bohr's Atomic Theory) and quantum mechanics, for which he received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1922. Bohr mentored and collaborated with many of the top physicists of the century(like hisenberg, schrodinger) at his institute in Copenhagen. He was also part of the team of physicists working on the Manhattan Project. One of his sons, Aage Niels Bohr, grew up to be an important physicist who, like his father, received the Nobel prize, in 1975. Bohr has been described as one of the most influential physicists of the 20th century.
