- Debye, Peter Joseph Wilhelm 1884-1966. Dutch-born American physicist. He won a 1936 Nobel Prize for his investigations on dipole movements and on diffraction of x-rays and electrons in gases.
“Professor Debye is married to Mathilde Alberer and has a son”
“The electric field of a charge falls off like where is the so-called Debye screening length of the plasma”
“Debye did not study crystals, however, but gases, which give less distinct diffraction patterns.”
“Now the solar wind can be quite dynamic – meaning it can change a lot – but the Debye length in any part of it will rarely, if ever, be greater than a few tens of meters.”
“Chuck La Monica: The thing which puts the kibosh on electromagnetic communication across large interstellar distances is the Debye length.”
“The solar wind is a plasma, and any electric field there is in it will not be felt much more than a few Debye lengths' away basically, because electrons and ions are free to move in a plasma, they screen charges – the source of electric fields – quite effectively; the Debye length is about as far as an electric field can penetrate.”
“The Debye screening length here clearly must has a frequency dependency, something I am not knowledgable of.”
“We had a talk last year from a historian of science about the Peter Debye thing, and Einstein said some remarkably catty things about Debye to the FBI at one point.”
“The oldest theories for the Compton effect were given by Compton, and 'Debijes' (Debye) and”
“The basis for the modern physics of polymers was laid by pioneers such as P. Debye, W. Kuhn, H.A. Kramers, and P. Flory.”
