Quantum electrodynamics

1937

However, further studies by Felix Bloch with Arnold Nordsieck, and Victor Weisskopf, in 1937 and 1939, revealed that such computations were reliable only at a first order of perturbation theory, a problem already pointed out by Robert Oppenheimer.

1940

With no solution for this problem known at the time, it appeared that a fundamental incompatibility existed between special relativity and quantum mechanics. Difficulties with the theory increased through the end of the 1940s.

1947

These experiments exposed discrepancies which the theory was unable to explain. A first indication of a possible way out was given by Hans Bethe in 1947, after attending the Shelter Island Conference.

1960

One such subsequent theory is quantum chromodynamics, which began in the early 1960s and attained its present form in the 1970s work by H.

1965

Shin'ichirĊ Tomonaga, Julian Schwinger and Richard Feynman were jointly awarded with the 1965 Nobel Prize in Physics for their work in this area.

1970

One such subsequent theory is quantum chromodynamics, which began in the early 1960s and attained its present form in the 1970s work by H.
