TitleHerzberg, Gerhard: certificate of election to the Royal Society
DescriptionCitation typed
CitationDr. Herzberg is distinguished for his work on atomic and molecular spectra. He has contributed greatly to the determination of the structures of diatomic and polyatomic molecules. He has been prominent in the study of forbidden transitions, and has recently observed the quadrupole rotation vibration spectrum of hydrogen. He has identified CH as a constituent of the interstellar medium, and has produced the nuclear bands of comets in the laboratory. His three books on atomic and molecular spectra are internationally known as standard works on the subject.
