Gerhard Herzberg (1904-1999), winner of the 1971 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, is taken into account the founding father of molecular spectroscopy. Born and proficient in Germany, he began his seven many years of study simply because the discovery of quantum mechanics all started unraveling the mysteries of the microscopic global. He selected to review spectroscopy, the sunshine emitted and absorbed by way of atoms and molecules, ultimately relocating to Canada the place he demonstrated the spectroscopy laboratory for the nationwide learn Council. His Ottawa laboratory grew to become a mecca for generations of younger scientists from around the globe. There, Herzberg systematized the data of the sector within the vintage trilogy Molecular Spectra and Molecular constitution, Atomic Spectra, and Atomic constitution. In awarding the Nobel Prize, the Swedish Academy acknowledged, "It's really unparalleled within the box of technology unmarried person, in spite of the fact that individual, could be a chief of a complete sector of analysis of common importance."
