The Janet Periodic Table was first published in 1929. This table may be re-arranged as a series of four square matrices. Each matrix is a different size. I believe that square matrices are important in physics.

If each cell of each matrix is represented as a cube, the matrices may then be stacked vertically. The result resembles a "stepped pyramid" having four levels. This gives a three dimensional periodic table. The structure relates any cube (cell) to a unique set of quantum numbers, which may also identify a "location" within the structure.

The quantum numbers of any element also defines its location within the 3D table. I wonder if the energy of a `most significant electron` may be related to its location and if subtle properties of elements may be revealed by this 3D table.

You can see the Janet version of the periodic table (along with a few other alternatives) at:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alternative_periodic_tables#Left_step_periodic_table_.28Janet.2C_1928.29

Richard, can you provide a link to the "four square matrices" version?

Personally, I like Mendeleev's Flower arrangement (scroll down the bottom of this web page).

Radiolab did a podcast on the discovery of the periodic table (17 minutes):

Hello Evan
Here are the links to the four matrix Table.
On Chemogenesis go to year 2008 and select
"Stack of elements Periodic Table"
regards
Richard

Apparently a "Raman dipole" and a definition of atomic shielding are required to build the four matrix table.

Hello again Evan;
Here is an update to the links you requested.
On Chemogenesis go to year 2008 and select
"Stack of Elements Periodic Table"
This link includes shielding terms.

A “Raman dipole” has been assumed to be a component of vibrational shielding. The dipole has a quantum number for magnetic moment (ma = ).

This magnetic moment should not be confused with spin magnetic moment (mS = ).

Is it possible for the polarity of a Raman dipole to be “flipped” or reversed?

If an atomic lattice is constructed, and if the Raman dipoles can be reversed, then each atom in the lattice may be considered to have a “magnetic switch”.

Is it possible to use the “Raman effect” to construct a computing device? Probably not as Raman dipole is specifically associated with an element. Dumb idea.

It is interesting that the numbers required to locate an element (as represented by atomic number) within the 3D table are the same as the quantum numbers associated with the "most significant electron".
