  Max Planck - MSN Encarta
Max Karl Ernst Ludwig Planck was born in Kiel on April 23, 1858, and educated at the universities of Munich and Berlin.
Planck's law states that the energy of each quantum is equal to the frequency of the radiation multiplied by the universal constant.
Planck's discoveries, which were later verified by other scientists, were the basis of an entirely new field of physics, known as quantum mechanics, and provided a foundation for research in such fields as atomic energy.

 Max Planck Society - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Max Planck Institutes operate independently from, though in close cooperation with, the universities, and focus on innovative research which does not fit into the university structure due to their interdisciplinary or transdisciplinary nature or which require resources that cannot be met by the state universities.
The Max Planck Society was founded in Göttingen after World War II in 1948 as the successor organization to the Prussian Kaiser-Wilhelm-Gesellschaft, which was established in 1911 as a non-governmental research organization named for the then German emperor.

 Max Planck   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
Max Karl Ernst Ludwig Planck was born on April 23, 1858, in Kiel, Germany, the sixth child of a distinguished jurist and professor of law at the University of Kiel.
Planck was particularly attracted to the formula found in 1896 by his colleague Wilhelm Wien at the Physikalisch-Technische Reichsanstalt (PTR) in Berlin-Charlottenburg, and he subsequently made a series of attempts to derive "Wien's law" on the basis of the second law of thermodynamics.
Planck became permanent secretary of the mathematics and physics sections of the Prussian Academy of Sciences in 1912 and held that position until 1938; he was also president of the Kaiser Wilhelm Society (now the Max Planck Society) from 1930 to 1937.

 Max Planck
Planck was deeply impressed by the law of conservation of energy and he became convinced that the second law of termodynamics was an absolute law of nature.
Planck based his doctoral dissertation on the second law of thermodynamics and in July 1879, at the young age of 21 he received his doctoral degree.
Planck was very reluctant to introduce his revolutionary idea on the quantisation of energy, and only by being forced by pure logic did he do so.

Planck's tenure at Münich was interrupted by illness in 1875.
Planck's suggestion was that the heat energy radiated by a fl body be thought of as a stream of "energy bundles," the magnitude of which is a function of the wavelength of the radiation.
Planck's own prestige allowed him to speak out against the rise of Nazism in Germany in the 1930s, but his enemies eventually managed to have him removed from his position at the Max Planck Society in 1937.

Planck faced a troubled and tragic period in his life during the period of the Nazi government in Germany, when he felt it his duty to remain in his country but was openly opposed to some of the Government's policies, particularly as regards the persecuti on of the Jews.

Max Karl Ernst Ludwig Planck born, raised, and educated in Germany, is one of the founders of modern science.
Underlying Quantum Mechanics is the theory that Planck posited and then verified that states: energy is not a smooth flowing continuum, but rather, it is manifested by the emission from radiating bodies of discrete particles called quanta.
Planck's initial theory and the work carried on by other physicists, such as Niels Bohr and Paul Dirac, basically redefined the nature of physics.

Constructed the Planck distribution for fl body radiation, 1900, and derived the distribution on the basis on the quantum hypothesis that the energies of the radiating oscillators were quantized.
Introduced the Planck constant h and the Boltzmann constant k, wrote Boltzmann's relation between the entropy and statistical weights in the modern form S = k lnW for the first time.
Planck later considered philosophical questions in physics and was a statesman of science.

Seeking to explain the experimental spectrum (distribution of electromagnetic energy according to wavelength) of fl body radiation, he introduced the hypothesis (1900) that oscillating atoms absorb and emit energy only in discrete bundles (called quanta) instead of continuously, as assumed in classical physics.
He was professor at the Univ. of Berlin (1889-1928) and president (1930-35) of the Kaiser Wilhelm Society for the Advancement of Science, Berlin, which after World War II was reconstituted as part of the Max Planck Institutes.

Planck was born in Kiel, Germany, on April 23, 1858, into a famous family that included scholars, lawyers, and public servants.
Planck assumed that energy did not exist as a continuous variable that could take on any value at all, but as a flow of discrete packages, to which he gave the name quanta.
Planck remained active and creative until he was almost 90.

 Evaluation of Usage and Acceptance of Electronic Journals: Results of an Electronic Survey of Max Planck Society ...
Within the Max Planck Society, the German basic research organization similar to an academy of the sciences, a survey of researchers' use and acceptance of electronic journals was carried out from April 15-May 15, 1999.
The Max Planck Society encompasses 84 research Institutes of varying sizes plus several additional Working Groups and Research Centers devoted to research in virtually all disciplines ranging from various aspects of physics, chemistry, mathematics and computer science, biological and biomedical sciences, to varied areas of the humanities and social sciences.
Max Planck Institutes in the humanities section criticized the content offerings of ScienceDirect in that only very few of the journals suited their research needs and they appealed for a greater spectrum of selection.

 Profile: The Max Planck Society and BIOSIS: Basic Research that Pushes the Boundaries of Science - Thomson Scientific
Research at the Max Planck Society aims at providing institutions throughout Germany, and the world, with the ground-breaking research that will set the stage for future developments in every field of learning possible – the life sciences, economics, law, the social sciences, and others.
The Society’s use of BIOSIS Previews is hardly surprising – both stress multi-disciplinary research, both focus on fundamental and experimental research in new areas of science.
However, since a goal of the Max Planck Society is to foster multi-disciplinary research, we wanted, for instance, the biologists to be able to follow interesting developments in physics and vice versa.

The Max Planck Society has reached an out of court settlement with a former graduate student whom it sacked last summer for producing research which "proved" that gassing of prisoners at Auschwitz never happened.
The affair has left the Max Planck Society, which runs dozens of prestigious research institutes across Germany, angry that its name has been tarred by association with the holocaust denial movement, and Rudolf bitter that he gets no compensation and has little chance of finding another job.
Using Max Planck stationary, he sent the samples to an analytical laboratory in Taunusstein, the Fresenius Institute.
