Aage Niels Bohr (IPA2|ˈɔːʊ̯̩ nels ˈb̥oɐ̯ˀ = OH-weh) (born June 19, 1922 in
Copenhagen) is a Danish physicistand the son of Margrethe and Niels Bohr. Growing up among physicistslike Wolfgang Pauliand Werner Heisenberg, he became a notable nuclear physicist in his own right, being awarded the Nobel Prize in Physicsin 1975. In 1946, he became an associate at the Niels Bohr Instituteof Theoretical Physicsat 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
Copenhagento 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 nucleonsorbiting inside an oscillating rotating droplet.
