Abstract

Fifty years ago articles by Born, Fajans and Haber were published in the same issue of the journal Verhandlungen der Deutschen Physikalischen Gesellschaft, and the method which has become commonly called the Born–Haber cycle was enunciated. A more correct name would be the Born–Fajans–Haber thermochemical correlation.
