Michelson, Albert Abraham German-born US physicist. With his colleague Edward Morley, he performed in 1887 the Michelson-Morley experiment to detect the motion of the Earth through the postulated ether (a medium believed to be necessary for the propagation of light). The failure of the experiment indicated the nonexistence of the ether, and led Albert Einstein to his theory of relativity. Michelson was the first American to be awarded a Nobel prize, in 1907.
He invented the Michelson interferometer to detect any difference in the velocity of light in two directions at right angles. The negative result of the Michelson-Morley experiment demonstrated that the velocity of light is constant whatever the motion of the observer. Michelson also made a precise measurement of the speed of light.
Michelson was born in Strelno (now Strzelno, Poland); his family emigrated to the USA and Michelson attended the US Naval Academy at Annapolis. Later he studied in Europe at Berlin and Paris. He was professor at the Case School of Applied Science in Cleveland, Ohio, 1882-89, and at Chicago 1892-1929.
Michelson first experimented with his interferometer in 1881. The presence of ether would have caused a change in the interference pattern, but he could detect none. In collaboration with Morley, he constructed a much more sensitive interferometer, but again found no change.

Albert Abraham Michelson Click here for full size picture (b. Dec. 19, 1852, Strelno, Prussiad. May 9, 1931, Pasadena, Calif., U.S.), German-born U.S. physicist who established the speed of light as a fundamental constant and pursued other spectroscopic and meteorological investigations. He received the 1907 Nobel Prize for Physics. Michelson came to the United States with his parents when he was two years old. From New York, the family made its way to Virginia City, Nev., and San Francisco, where the elder Michelson prospered as a merchant. At 17, Michelson entered the United States Naval Academy at Annapolis, Md., where he did well in science but was rather below average in seamanship. He was graduated in 1873, then served as science instructor at the academy from 1875 until 1879. In 1878 Michelson began work on what was to be the passion of his life, the accurate measurement of the speed of light. He was able to get useful values with homemade apparatus. Feeling the need to study optics before he could be qualified to make real progress, he travelled to Europe in 1880 and spent two years in Berlin, Heidelberg, and Paris, resigning from the navy in 1881. Upon his return to the United States, he determined the velocity of light to be 299,853 kilometres (186,329 miles) per second, a value that remained the best for a generation. When it was bettered, Michelson bettered it. While in Europe, Michelson began constructing an interferometer, a device designed to split a beam of light in two, send the parts along perpendicular paths, then bring them back together. If the light waves had, in the interim, fallen out of step, interfererence fringes of alternating light and dark bands would be obtained. From the width and number of those fringes, unprecedently delicate measurements could be made, comparing the velocity of light rays travelling at right angles to each other.

Albert A. Michelson
In 1878, Michelson began work on what became his life passion, accurately measuring the speed of light. the first time he did this, he used ten dollars worth of apparatus along the seawall. He then travelled to Europe in 1880 to study optics and it was here that he began to build the interferometer. This device would split a beam of light in two and bring the parts back together, by evaluating the changes in the waves, accurate measurements could be made. When he returned to the United States, he measured the speed of light to be 299,835 km/s, with this value, which was the accepted value for forty years, Michelson became famous while still in his twenties. He was also the next to better the value shortly before his death.
In 1893, Michelson lead the fundamental research for determining the length of the standard meter. He did it in terms of the red light emitted by heated cadmium. He also measured the diameter of the star Betelgeuse to be 386,160,000 km (300 times bigger than the Sun) using a six-meter interferometer attached to a 254-centimeter telescope. This was the first accurate measurement of the size of a star.
Michelson was the first American to ever receive a Nobel Prize in the sciences. In 1907, he won the Nobel Laureate in Physics "for his optical instruments and the spectroscopic and metrological investigations carried out with their aid." Michelson's many contributions to the physics of light included his invention of optical precision instruments. He, himself, used many of these "in experiments that marked the beginning of modern physics." Michelson published 79 scientific papers throughout his career, among them are "Velocity of Light" (1902) and "Light Waves and Their Uses" (1903). He was also president of several scientific societies such as the National Academy of Sciences from 1923-1927.

Myth # 59
Shedding Light on Nevada's First Nobel Laureate
by Guy Rocha, Nevada State Archivist A myth perpetuated at the Fourth Ward School in Virginia City surrounds the childhood schooling of Albert Abraham Michelson (1852-1931). Michelson grew up to become a preeminent scientist specializing in the properties of light. He won the distinguished Nobel Prize in physics in 1907, the first American to win the coveted award. The story goes that Michelson attended the Fourth Ward School before pursuing his studies at the U.S. Naval Academy. Let's shed some light on the facts. Michelson was born in Strelno, a small Prussian village on December 19, 1852. The Jewish family, in search of greater freedom and opportunity, immigrated to the United States in 1854. After a brief time in New York, the family relocated to San Francisco and then moved to the Mother Lode country. At fourteen, young Albert arrived on the Comstock from Murphy's Camp, Calaveras County, with his father, Samuel, mother, Rosalie, and five siblings. On September 4, 1867, Samuel Michelson purchased a residence at 37 North F Street. Samuel soon opened a dry goods business at 24 South C Street. In 1870, Albert Michelson graduated high school at the age of seventeen. Historian Phil Earl in his "This Was Nevada" article describing the career of Michelson noted that he took an examination for a Congressional appointment to the U. S. Naval Academy at Annapolis, Maryland. He tied with another aspirant, and lost the appointment because of some political maneuvering on behalf of his competitor. "Undaunted, he got a letter of recommendation from Congressman Thomas Fitch and set off to Washington, D. C. to try and get one of the ten appointments at large from President Grant," Earl wrote. "He talked with Grant but the appointments had already been made. Going on to the Academy, he so impressed the Commandant with his earnestness that a place was made for him at the school as the eleventh appointment."

Albert A. Michelson
The renowned physicist Albert Abraham Michelson was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1907. He spent a significant amount of his life trying to improve upon earlier scientific research and is often credited with the statement: "the grand underlying principles have been firmly established...further truths of physics are to be looked for in the sixth place of decimals." Michelson is most widely remembered for his experiments in which he proved that the hypothetical medium of light, known as " ether ", did not exist, as well as his many attempts to accurately measure the speed of light. Although Michelson was born in Strzelno, Prussia (now Poland), on December 19, 1852, his family moved to the United States when he was only 3 years old. Landing in New York, the Michelson clan soon traveled westward, eventually settling in San Francisco, California where the elder Michelson became a successful merchant. At the age of 17, Albert Michelson entered the United States Naval Academy and excelled in his studies of the sciences, although he was a less than admirable sailor. Graduating in 1873, he began teaching science at the Naval Academy in 1875 and remained in the position for four years. During the period of his military employment, Michelson started work on what would be a driving force in his life, the precise measurement of the speed of light. However, Michelson realized that he would need to know more about optics in order to be able to improve upon the values previously obtained by others. He traveled to Europe with the intention to study the field and retired from the Navy in 1881. When he returned to North America, he established the most accurate value of the velocity of light available at that time, 299,853 kilometers per second. The measurement remained the best for almost an entire generation before he made it even more precise.
