Google Doodle celebrates 135th birthday of famous physicist Max Born

Mondays’ doodle is a tribute from Google to the famous physicist Max Born. Google’s home page celebrates the 135th birth anniversary of Born. The doodle has been created by a guest artist named Kati Szilagyi.

The father of the famous Born Rule, Max Born, in today’s Google  is seen using a pen that resembles the symbol psi- a symbol for wave function in Physics. Best known for his contribution in the field of Quantum Physics, Born won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1954 for his fundamental research in Quantum Mechanics, especially in the statistical interpretation of the wave function.

The Born Rule or the Born Law is a law of  quantum mechanics that uses probability to predict the location of wave particles in a quantum system. Born along with a Fritz Haber  who was a German Chemist, also found the Born-Haber cycle. Named after its founders, Born-Haber cycle is used to analyse the lattice energies involved in the formation of an ionic compound from gaseous ions.  

Max Born was born on this day in year 1882 in Breslau which is now in Poland. His father Gustav Born was an anatomist and embryologist who taught at the University of Breslau. Born was four when his mother, Margarethe (Gretchen) nee Kauffmann, passed away.
