Extension of the Bohr Theory: Elliptic Orbits
The Bohr theory was very successful in predicting with great accuracy the wavelengths of the spectral lines in hydrogen and singly ionized helium. Shortly after
Bohr published his model of the atom, there was a significant improvement in spectroscopic resolution. Refined spectroscopic analysis showed that the spectral lines
were not simple, but consisted of a number of lines very close together, a so-called
fine structure. In terms...
