From the history of physics

Creation and development of Bohr’s theory (on the 90th anniversary of the Bohr theory of the atom)

Department ofExperimental Physics, Peoples Friendship University ofRussia, ul. Miklukho-Maklaya 6, Moscow, 117198, Russian Federation

The history of the creation and development of Bohr’s atomic theory is discussed. Even now, with a consistent quantum theory available, Bohr’s theory is not simply the property of history, of methodological interest only. To this day, the ideas of the theory not only provide an excellent introduction to atomic physics, but are also used successfully in treating atomic Rydberg states, exotic atoms, etc.
