30852 Debye           Discovered 1991 Oct. 2 by F. Borngen and L. D. Schmadel at Tautenburg.
Dutch-American physical chemist Peter Debye (1884-1966), recipient of the 1936 Nobel prize in chemistry, carried out theoretical and experimental research in quantum physics, investigating molecular and crystalline structures, dipole moments, diffraction effects by x-rays and the scattering of light in gases.
