Øyvind Burrau (or Øjvind Burrau[1][2]), born 24 March 1896[3] in Copenhagen, died 31 March 1979[4], was a Danish scientist who is best known for his early quantum mechanical description of the dihydrogen cation[1][2] which he made while at the Niels Bohr Institute[2].

Burrau worked as a geodesist at the Geodætisk Institut from 1928 to 1963.[3]
