Erwin Schrodinger (1887-1961), Austrian physicist. In 1926, Schrodinger published a series of papers that founded the science of quantum wave mechanics. His wave equation described the wave- like dual behaviour of particles, and correctly predicted the electron distribution of the hydrogen atom. He shared the 1933 Nobel Prize for Physics with Paul Dirac. He was Physics Professor at Berlin University from 1927-1933, eventually settling in Ireland and retiring to Austria in 1956. Photographed c.1926.
