Chronology of Milestone Events in Particle Physics

  Nobel prize to O. Stern awarded in 1943 "for his contributions to the development of the molecular ray method and his discovery of the magnetic momentof the proton''  


Esterman, I.; Stern, O.;
Über die magnetische Ablenkung von Wasserstoffmolekülen und das magnetische Moment des Protons. II / Magnetic Deviation of Hydrogen Molecules and the Magnetic Moment of the Proton. II.
Z. Phys. 85 (1933) 17;

Accurate investigation of the deviation of hydrogen molecular rays gives the value of 2.5 nuclear magnetons ( 10%) for the magnetic moment of the proton, and the value 0.8-0.9 for the rotation moment of the hydrogen molecule. Deviation curves for ortho and para hydrogen are given. (Science Abstracts 1933, 5076, W.R.A.).
