About Dudley Herschbach

Herschbach is widely recognized for his important contributions to chemistry and chemical physics. His early work focused on experiments using molecular beams to resolve the dynamics of chemical reactions in single-collisions. This method made accessible many properties otherwise obscured by myriad random collisions, and ultimately led to the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1986 (shared with Yuan Lee and John C. Polanyi). His current research includes excursions into biophysics, a novel dimensional scaling approach to electronic structure, and high pressure chemistry. Since 1976, Herschbach has served as the Frank B. Baird, Jr. Professor of Science at Harvard University.
