Caption: (1845-1932) German physicist who discovered X-rays. While a professor of physics at Wurzburg, he noticed that a card coated with barium platinocyanide glowed when an electric discharge tube was switched on. Roentgen termed this phenomenon X-ray radiation and suggested X-rays were short wave electromagnetic rays. He was awarded the first Nobel Prize for physics in 1901.
