Caption: Oliver Lodge. Portrait of British physicist Sir Oliver Joseph Lodge (1851-1940). Lodge studied physics at the Royal College of Science and at University College, London. He performed early experiments in radio. In 1888 Lodge showed that radio-frequency waves could be transmitted along electric wires. However, Hertz had simultaneously demonstrated that such waves could be transmitted through air, establishing the basis for radio communication. Lodge went on to make useful technical advances, designing an improved radio detector and in 1894 he demonstrated a form of radio telegraphy. He was first to attempt to detect radio waves from celestial objects.
