Rice experiment yields closest analog yet for classic atomic model Nearly a century after Danish physicist Niels Bohr offered his planet-like model of the hydrogen atom, a Rice University-led team of physicists has created giant, millimeter-sized atoms that resemble it more closely than any other experimental realization yet achieved. The research is available online in Physical Review Letters. Bohr offered the first successful theoretical model of the atom in 1913, suggesting that electrons...
