(born 9 September 1922 in Görlitz, Germany) is a German-born American physicist, who co-developed the ion trap technique with Wolfgang Paul, for which they shared one-half of the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1989 (the other half of the Prize in that year was awarded to Norman Foster Ramsey). Their technique was used for high precision measurement of the electron g-factor.
Wolfgang Paul was a German physicist who shared the 1989 Nobel Prize in physics for his research and invention of the ion trap, also known as the Paul trap. He shared the prize with German-born American physicist Hans GeorgDehmelt, who developed the ion trap technique at the same time as Paul. The prize was also shared by American physicist Norman Foster Ramsey for work in a different field.
