  Joseph Larmor
Larmor proposed that the aether could be represented as a homogeneous fluid medium which was perfectly incompressible and elastic.
Larmor held that matter consisted of particles moving in the aether.
Larmor held that the flow of charged particles constitutes the current of conduction (but was not part of the atom).

 Sir Joseph Larmor   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
Joseph Larmor (1857-1942) was a theoretical physicist and mathematician who began the twentieth century as the fourteenth holder of the Lucasian Chair.
The Larmor Frequency is the result of the calculation omega =(e/2m) B. The omega is the angular momentum of an electron and the B is the magnetic field.
Larmor had chosen to build his electron theory, which was essentially in the correct direction, in the context of the ether, which was not the correct environment.

 Profile of Joseph Larmor
Joseph Larmor (1857-1942) was educated at the Royal Belfast Academical Institution and the Queens College Belfast.
Larmor is well known for his contributions to the theory of electromagnetism, in particular the electron theory of matter.
Larmor's work, though rooted in the classical physics in which he had been trained, eventually led to the breakdown of classical physics and the rise of relativity theory and quantum mechanics.

 Larmor precession - Encyclopedia, History, Geography and Biography
In physics, Larmor precession, named after Joseph Larmor refers to the precession of the magnetic moments of electrons, atomic nuclei, and atoms around the direction of an external magnetic field.
A famous 1935 paper published by Lev Landau and Evgeny Lifshitz predicted the existence of ferromagnetic resonance of the Larmor precession, which was verified experimentally by J. Griffiths in 1946.
The concept of Larmor precession is used in nuclear magnetic resonance.

In this sense the term was used by Joseph Larmor, J.J. Thomson's Cambridge classmate.
Larmor devised a theory of the electron that described it as a structure in the ether (the invisible elastic fluid that was proposed as a substrate for light and other electrical phenomena).
But Larmor's theory did not describe the electron as a part of the atom.

Joseph John Thomson was born in Cheetham Hill, a suburb of Manchester on December 18, 1856.
Thomson won the scholarship, and in 1880 finished second in his class (behind Joseph Larmor) in the grueling graduation examination in mathematics.
Joseph John Thomson was born in 1856 in Cheetham Hill, Manchester in England, of Scottish parentage.

Joseph Larmor had worked in this area, arguing that sunspots regenerate themselves through a dynamo effect.
Cowling showed that Larmor's explanation was incorrect and his article assured him of a good reputation in the field of astrophysics.
During the 1930s, Cowling also worked on stellar structure involving radiation and convection, at the same time as Ludwig Biermann but independently of him.

From Queen's University in Belfast Larmor went to Cambridge, where he bested Thomson in the mathematical exams.
After a stint teaching in Galway, Larmor spent most of his career as a Cambridge professor.
His elaborately mathematical electrical theory of the late 1890s included the "electron" as a rotational strain (a sort of twist) in the ether.
