Aage Niels Bohr (IPA2|ˈɔːʊ̯̩ nels ˈb̥oɐ̯ˀ = OH-weh) (born June 19, 1922 in Copenhagen) is a Danish physicist and the son of Margrethe and Niels Bohr. Growing up among physicists like Wolfgang Pauli and Werner Heisenberg, he became a notable nuclear physicist in his own right, being awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1975. In 1946, he became an associate at the Niels Bohr Institute of Theoretical Physics at the University of Copenhagen. He served as the director of the institute from 1963 to 1970.

In 1948, Bohr worked with Ben Mottelson and Leo James Rainwater in Copenhagen to summarize the current knowledge of nuclear structure in a monograph. The first volume, "Single-Particle Motion," appeared in 1969, and the second volume, "Nuclear Deformations," in 1975. Their efforts on this project and their collaboration on nuclear theory led all three of them to receive the 1975 Nobel Prize in Physics, for research on the quantum mechanical description of nucleons orbiting inside an oscillating rotating droplet.
