ABSTRACT
Siegbahn, Kai Manne Borje (1918-) is a Swedish physicist. He won a share of the 1981 Nobel Prize in physics for his contribution to the development of high-resolution electron spectroscopy, a technique for analyzing substances at the atomic level. Siegbahn shared the prize with the American physicists Nicolaas Bloembergen and Arthur Leonard Schawlow, who independently developed the related technique of laser spectroscopy.
