Erwin Schrödinger

Where He Studied and Lived

1.Schrodinger wrote 'What is Life' in which he explained the concepts of negentropy and complex molecule and the genetic code for living organisms.2.He was awarded the Haytingera Prize of the Austrian Academy of Sciences in the year 1920 for his work.

Erwin Studied physics and machanics and in his early years, biology.

After years of chemistry studies, Schrödinger devoted himself to Italian painting.

In 1934, Schrodinger was invited to teach at Princeton University, but he declined the offer.

Contrubutions to Atomic StuctureSchrodinger added a final discovery to the puzzle of electronic arrangement and illustrated the problem of Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics.He added his discovery of the arrangement around the nuclei of atoms. He proposed electrons behave in wave like manner and that their location within an orbit cannot be approximately calculated. His model decribed where they might be. Erwin's model allowed the electron to occupy three-dimensional space, therefore, it required three coordinates/ three quantum numbers, to describe the orbits where electrons can be found. Schrodinger's view of the atom can be seen as "layers within layers" in terms of the electron shells. This principle is complex but it’s needed for atom reaction understatement.

Erwin Schrodinger conducted experiments to illustrate a scenario where an organism can be both alive and dead, testing a state known as quantum superposition. In this experiment he locked his cat in a box, along with a radioactive atom connected to a vial containing a deadly poison. When the atom decayed, it caused the the vail to smash the poison and killed the cat. Because the box is closed, the conductors don't know whether or not the atom decayed, which means the atom could have been both in a decayed or non-decayed state. Furthermore, the cat is both dead and alive at the same time.

Erwin was born in Veinna, Austria. He lived there through his teens, then eventually moved to the University of Zurioh in Berlin. He then transferred to study at Friedrich Wilhelm University, then came to Oxford and Princeton later on. Later in his life, he returned to Austria at the Vograz.
