E Index of Arthur Compton (1892 – 1962)

This is E = 9561, A = 107.43, B = 89, h = 28. I have been fascinated by Compton’s work since second year undergraduate, and with Horst Eckardt, have recently extended it in UFT158 ff., a hugely popular series of papers. He was born in Wooster Ohio and received the 1927 Nobel Prize for demonstrating at Princeton the wave particle dualism of de Broglie in electrons. He published about 89 papers, and was a prominent figure in the Manhattan project, overseeing Fermi. He became Chancellor of Washington University St. Louis.
