J Biomol NMR (2017) 69:181–182 DOI 10.1007/s10858-017-0143-4 OBITUARY Nicolaas Bloembergen: a pioneer in magnetic resonance and in maser and laser physics 1 1 2 Rob Kaptein · Rolf Boelens · Claudio Luchinat © Springer Science+Business Media B.V. 2017 Nicolaas Bloembergen, Nobel laureate, died on September In particular his work on nonlinear optics earned him the 5 at the age of 97 in Tucson, Arizona. Nobel Prize in Physics in 1981 (https://www.nobelprize.org/ nobel_prizes/physics/laureates/1981/). Nico Bloembergen was born in 1920 in The Netherlands. He started his study of physics in 1938 at Utrecht University mainly because Utrecht was conveniently close to Bilthoven, the town where he lived. He passed his master’s exam in 1943 just a few weeks before the German army, that occu- pied Holland during World War II, closed the university. As conditions for his PhD research would be very poor in Holland during and just after the war, he moved in 1946 to Harvard University, where he was accepted as the first PhD student of Edward Purcell. Of course, NMR in con- densed matter had just been discovered by Purcell and his co-workers Pound and Torrey (and independently by Felix Bloch at Stanford). For their discoveries Purcell and Bloch would share the Nobel Prize
