Langmuir

Definition of the noun langmuir

What does langmuir mean as a name of something?

noun

  1. United States chemist who studied surface chemistry and developed the gas-filled tungsten lamp and worked on high temperature electrical discharges (1881-1957)
    • lexical domain: People - nouns denoting people
    • synonym of Langmuir: Irving Langmuir
    • instance of: chemist = a scientist who specializes in chemistry

Explanation

  1. Langmuir is a peer-reviewed scientific journal that was established in 1985 and is published by the American Chemical Society. It covers research in the areas of surface and colloid chemistry.
  2. The langmuir is a unit of exposure to a surface and is used in ultra-high vacuum surface physics to study the adsorption of gases. It is a practical unit, and is not dimensionally homogeneous, and so is only used in this one field. It is named after American physicist Irving Langmuir.
    • also known as Langmuirs
  3. Langmuir is an impact crater on the Moon's far side. It is located in a region to the southwest of the Mare Orientale impact basin. Langmuir is bracketed between two larger craters, with Chebyshev to the west-northwest and Brouwer to the east. It partly overlaps the rims of these two craters, making it the youngest of the three. The outer rampart of ejecta from Langmuir partly covers the southeast interior floor of Chebyshev.
    • also known as لنگمویر
