Wolfgang Pauli

Wolfgang Pauli (1900 - 1958) is best known for the Pauli exclusion principle, proposed in 1918, which states that no two electrons in an atom can have the same four quantum numbers. He was awarded ...

The Pauli Exclusion Principle

The Pauli exclusion principle was first proposed by Wolfgang Pauli. He guessed that two electrons can't be in the same quantum state in the same atom.

Wolfgang Pauli first suggested, around 1930, that neutrinos might exist, because without them, momentum didn't seem to be conserved in nuclear reactions. Neutrinos were actually detected 10 years ...

Pauli Exclusion Principle

No two electrons in an atom can have identical quantum numbers. This is an example of a general principle which applies not only to electrons but also to other particles of half-integer spin ...

Neutron Degeneracy

Neutron degeneracy is a stellar application of the Pauli Exclusion Principle, as is electron degeneracy. No two neutrons can occupy identical states, even under the pressure of a collapsing star of ...
