Lev Landau (Soviet physicist) Celebrates Google Doodle


Today the Search Engine Google is celebrating
Lev Landau’s 111th Birthday with Google Doodle in the few countries. Lev Davidovich Landau was a Soviet physicist
who made fundamental contributions to many areas of theoretical physics. His accomplishments include the independent
co-discovery of the density matrix method. Born in Baku, Azerbaijan, on this day in 19,08,
Lev Davidovich Landau was a Soviet theoretical physicist who won the 1962 Nobel Prize in
Physics for his research into liquid helium’s behavior at extremely low temperatures. the theory of second-order phase transitions,
the Ginzburg–Landau theory of superconductivity, the theory of Fermi liquid, the explanation
of Landau damping in plasma physics, the Landau pole in quantum electrodynamics, the two-component
theory of neutrinos, and Landau’s equations for S matrix singularities.He received the
1962 Nobel Prize in Physics for his development of a mathematical theory of superfluidity
that accounts for the properties of liquid helium II at a temperature below 2.17 K (−270.98
°C). Described by classmates as a quiet, shy boy
young Landau was brilliant at math and science, but struggled in relating to his classmates. Having completed his studies by age 13, Landau
was ready to start college long before his peers. Enrolling in the Physics Department of Leningrad
University, his first publication, On the Theory of the Spectra of Diatomic Molecules
was already in print when he was just 18 years old. Completing his Ph.D. at age 21, Landau earned
a Rockefeller fellowship and a Soviet stipend which allowed him to visit research facilities
in Zurich, Cambridge, and Copenhagen, where he had the opportunity to study with Nobel
Laureate Niels Bohr. Renowned for his work in quantum theory, Bohr
had a profound impact on the young physicist. Happy Birthday, Lev Landau Thanks for watching Please Like , Share , Subscribe and Comment
