Oscar Buneman
Oscar Buneman
In 1940 upon completion of his PhD with Douglas Hartree,[1] Buneman joined Hartree's magnetron research group assisting the development of radar during World War II. They discovered the Buneman–Hartree criterion for the voltage threshold of a magnetron operation. After the war, Buneman developed theories and simulations of collision-less dissipation of...
