Caption: Langmuir laboratory. Equipment and researcher (upper right) in 1914 in the General Electric laboratory of US physical chemist Irving Langmuir (1881-1957). These research laboratories are located in Schenectady, New York, USA, and Langmuir worked here from 1909 to 1950. In the early years here, he worked on diffusion pumps, vacuum tubes, and light bulbs. His assistant at this time was his cousin the electrical engineer William Comings White (1890-1965). Langmuir was awarded the 1932 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his later work on surface chemistry, originating from a paper published in 1917.
