This has been called the "Dicke coincidence" argument. During the early 1940s Dicke and other researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) played a key role in the development of microwave radar.

Dr Robert H Dicke, noted physicist and gravity theorist, dies at age 80; photo (M)

We also referred to a later paper by Alpher, Follin, and Hermann[20] that gives a close to modern treatment of the centrally important evolution of the neutron-proton ratio, and notes that the predicted hydrogen-to-helium ratio is in the range 1:7 to 1:10 by number, in line with astronomical data. He was the Albert Einstein Professor in Science at Princeton University (1975 - 1984). In 1960 Bob with William F. Hoffman and Robert Krotkov showed that an optical corner reflector offers a good way to get precision distances to an artificial satellite.

Dicke narrowing is analogous to the Mössbauer effect for gamma rays. Single-ion scaling and unconventional Kondo behavior in the electrical resistivity of the U1-xThxPd2Al3 system Physical Review B - Condensed Matter and Materials Physics. We failed to make an adequate literature search and missed the more important papers of Gamow, Alpher and Herman. His work led him to formulate what is often considered the first quantum theory of the emission of coherent radiation. Dicke received a bachelor’s degree from

Robert H. Dicke, in full Robert Henry Dicke, (born May 6, 1916, St. Louis, Mo., U.S.—died March 4, 1997, Princeton, N.J.), American physicist noted for his theoretical work in cosmology and investigations centring on the general theory of relativity. This implies a negligible curvature, so the universe must have almost critical density. In recognition of Princeton physicist Robert Dicke, whose generosity enabled this program, the scholars are called "Dicke Fellows.". And the more significant and fundamental the experiment the more theoretical uncertainty may be tolerated. …they consulted with American physicist Robert Dicke, who was studying oscillatory models of the universe with hot phases and who was therefore not surprised by what they had found. Robert Allen Dickey was born on October 29, 1974 in Nashville, Tennessee. In 1946, he returned to Princeton University, where he remained for the rest of his career. An important contribution to the field of spectroscopy and radiative transfer was his prediction of the phenomenon called Dicke narrowing: When the mean free path of an atom is much smaller than the wavelength of one of its radiation transitions, the atom changes velocity and direction many times during the emission or absorption of a photon.

Kreutzer's limit (for teflon floating in a mixture of methyl bromide and trichloroethelene) is |r1-r2|<4 x 10-5 at 68% confidence. By the 1960s Dicke had become actively interested in gravitation.

[citation needed] However, in an interview with Martin Harwit he claims that even though he is often credited with the invention of the device; he believes he read about it in a review of scientific equipment written by Walter C. Michels, a professor at Bryn Mawr.[14][15]. Nordtvedt[18] analyzed the effect in an extension of the parametrized formulation of metric gravity theory. Dicke received a bachelor’s degree from Princeton University (1939) and a doctorate from the University of Rochester (1941). Robert Allen Dickey 5. In addition to salary and benefits, the program provides a discretionary fund. 0.44: 1998: Freeman EJ, De Andrade MC, Dickey … The time delay gives a precision distance, which can be used to test the Nordtvedt effect, among other things. And cosmology dramatically advanced. You can help! In 1970, Dicke was awarded the National Medal of Science. Bob's largest experimental collaboration grew in part from his remark (and later independently that of Kenneth L. Nordtvedt) that if the strength of the gravitational interaction were a function of position the gravitational acceleration of a body massive enough to have a significant gravitational self-energy would differ from that of a nearly massless test particle. And perhaps we'll ask some questions that lead from there also.Forman:You had 6. Log in to add people & connections, or click here to create an account.

In 1964 Dicke and several colleagues hypothesized that the entire universe is pervaded by a background radiation of microwave wavelengths—the remnant of the intense thermal radiation associated with the apparent explosive origin of the cosmos (see big-bang model). In 1969, at the first moon landing, the astronauts set out a rack of 100 corner reflectors designed to reflect a pulsed laser beam from earth. Born in St. Louis, Missouri, Dicke completed his bachelor's degree at Princeton University and his doctorate, in 1939, from the University of Rochester in nuclear physics.
