Caption: Heinrich Rubens (1865-1922), German physicist. Rubens made key measurements of black-body radiation, which was a key advance towards the development of quantum theory. He did this work in Berlin in 1900, and by 1906 he was a professor at the University of Berlin. He was awarded the Rumford Medal in 1910 for this work, and participated in both of the first two famous Solvay conferences of 1911 and 1913. His other work included the development of what is known as the Rubens' tube, used to demonstrate acoustic standing waves. Rubens was nominated three times for the Nobel Prize in Physics (once in 1907 and twice in 1909).
