Caption: Wilhelm Konrad Roentgen (1845-1923), German experimental physicist. Montage of images of the life and work of Roentgen, the discoverer of X-rays. While in a darkened room using a discharge tube (in which an electric discharge is passed through a gas at low pressure , Roentgen noticed that a card coated with barium platinocyanide glowed when the tube was switched on. The effect was not blocked by an intervening wall, or even a thin sheet of metal. Roentgen termed this newly discovered phenomenon X-ray radiation, and suggested that it consisted of electromagnetic rays with a shorter wavelength than light. He was awarded the first Nobel Prize in Physics in 1901.
