He's conjured up Heisenberg's shade, along with those of Bohr and Bohr's wife Margrethe, to recreate the meeting in Copenhagen--to imagine it from all of its many uncertain perspectives--and, in the process, produce a riveting piece of theater.
It concerns the visit that Heisenberg, a German, made to the home of his Danish mentor, Bohr, in Nazi-occupied Copenhagen in 1941--a meeting that has left scientists and historians speculating what might have occurred as the two world-famous physicists dined with Bohr's wife and then went out into the night for their customary walk and talk.

It has been a generation since a collection of studies has looked at the thought of Danish physicist Bohr (1885-1962), and this new one considers understanding his philosophical background and the place of his interpretation of quantum mechanics in 21st-century physics.

Bohr, who first suggested the possibility of a nuclear field effect on the S-term of the series of atomic spectra, (22) people in the 1920s could hardly imagine that optical spectroscopy would provide nuclear-structure information, because Rutherford (4) showed the dimension of the atomic nucleus to be extremely small (ca.
Crucially, whether the experimenter chooses to use the second beam splitter or not, the light is either 100 percent particle or 100 percent wave when it exits the interferometer, just as Bohr would have expected.
That supposition was dramatically based on the famous conversation in 1941 in Nazioccupied Copenhagen between Heisenberg, the most famous German scientist and Niels Bohr, the Dane who was the father of Quantum Mechanics.
