Caption: Owen Willans Richardson (1879-1959), British physicist. Richardson studied Natural Sciences at Cambridge University, England, and was elected a fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge, in 1902. His most famous work was announced in 1901 as he read out an equation describing the thermionic emission of electrons from metals. This is now known as the Richardson-Dushmann equation, and Richardson was awarded the 1928 Nobel Prize for Physics for this work. Richardson also worked at Princeton University, USA, from 1906-1913 and, from 1914, at King's College, London.
