Doppler effect

Dopplerdoppler shiftDoppler shifts
He is celebrated for his principle — known as the Doppler effect — that the observed frequency of a wave depends on the relative speed of the source and the observer. This was independently at the same time when physicist Armand Hippolyte Louis Fizeau became also involved in aspects of the discovery of the Doppler effect, which is known by the French as the Doppler-Fizeau Effect.
It is named after the Austrian physicist Christian Doppler, who described the phenomenon in 1842.

Über das farbige Licht der Doppelsterne und einiger anderer Gestirne des Himmels

One year later, at the age of 38, Doppler gave a lecture to the Royal Bohemian Society of Sciences and subsequently published his most notable work, "Über das farbige Licht der Doppelsterne und einiger anderer Gestirne des Himmels" (On the coloured light of the binary stars and some other stars of the heavens).
Über das farbige Licht der Doppelsterne und einiger anderer Gestirne des Himmels is a treatise by Christian Doppler (1842) in which he postulated his principle that the observed frequency changes if either the source or the observer is moving, which later has been coined the Doppler effect.
