Max Born’s 50th Death Anniversary († January 5, 1970)

Max Born is one of the most remarkable physicists and mathematicians of the 20th century. His research contributes substantially to the founding of theoretical quantum physics.

Born into a bourgeois German-Jewish family Born attends universities in Breslau, Heidelberg, Zurich, Cambridge and Göttingen where he studies mathematics, physics, astronomy as well as law and moral philosophy. After completing his habilitation in 1909 with a work on the “relativistic electron” he does research at the universities in G­öttingen and Frankfurt before accepting a position as professor extraordinarius of theoretical physics at the Friedrich-Wlhelms-University in Berlin, where he gets to work with luminaries like Albert Einstein and Max Planck. Four years later he gets his first professorship at Frankfurt am Main. In 1921 he is called to Göttingen. There he develops fundamental portions of quantum mechanics, among his assistants is Werner Heisenberg.

After the Nazi Party comes to power he is suspended without pay and emigrates to England. At first he works at the Cavendish Lab in Cambridge. In 1939 he assumes the prestigious position as Tait professor in Edinburgh. Born retires in 1953 and returns to Germany. One year later he is honoured with the Noble Prize for his statistical interpretation of wave function, also known as “Copenhagen Interpretation”.

Born is outspoken about philosophical and social questions, in particular he talks about the responsibility of scientists. Together with 17 other leading nuclear scientists he signs the Göttingen Manifest in 1957, which opposes the German government’s plans to arm the West German military with nuclear tactical weapons. In 1970, at the age of 87, Born dies in Göttingen, of which he had been an honorary citizen.
