The Lundbeck Foundation supports digitisation effort

Niels Bohr

Niels Bohr at his desk, c. 1940.

The Danish Lundbeck Foundation has approved NBA's application for digitising the original letters of the Niels Bohr Scientific Correspondence and making them available on NBA's website. The collection is one of the most important resources for studying the history of quantum physics and the people involved in this crucial development in the history of physics. It has been available on microfilm in several repositories around the world as part of the Archive for the History of Quantum Physics since the early 1960s. High-quality scans of the letters will become gradually available on NBA's website beginning in September 2016. The project is expected to be completed by 30 April 2018.
