Presently only one (but good) biography source is given here.

An excellent and fairly recent book-source is:

M. Eckert, Die Atomphysiker - Eine Geschichte der Theoretischen Physik am Beispiel der Sommerfeldschule. Vieweg Verlag, Braunschweig (Germany), 1993.

Unfortunately the book appears to be out of print - so this website will bring some text and some pictures from it at a later date - please DO remind me if you like.
