Caption: Werner Heisenberg. Portrait of the German physicist Werner Karl Heisenberg (1901-1976). He won the 1932 Nobel Prize for Physics for his work on his matrix theory of quantum mechanics. It was a dualistic theory, meaning that phenomena could be described either in terms of waves or in terms of the new quanta (particles). In 1927, Heisenberg stated his uncertainty principle that a particle's momentum and position cannot both be determined. Measuring one will affect the other and produce a probablistic uncertainty in the subatomic world.
