Description

Physics: 1901-1921 presents the Nobel lectures, presentation addresses, and biographies of scientists who won the Nobel Prize in Physics during the years 1901-1921. These Nobel laureates include Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen, Antoine Henri Becquerel, Pierre and Marie Curie, Joseph John Thomson, Gabriel Lippmann, Guglielmo Marconi, Max Planck, and Albert Einstein. Their lectures cover topics ranging from the theory of electrons and the propagation of light to radioactivity, cathode rays, and carriers of negative electricity.

This volume begins with the presentation speech by C. T. Odhner, president of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences and former rector of the National Archives, for Röntgen, followed by Röntgen's lecture. This is followed by presentation speeches, lectures, and biographies of other physicists such as Hendrik Antoon Lorentz, Pieter Zeeman, Antoine Henri Becquerel, Pierre and Marie Curie, Lord Rayleigh, Philipp Eduard Anton von Lenard, Joseph John Thomson, Albert Abraham Michelson, Gabriel Lippmann, Guglielmo Marconi, Carl Ferdinand Braun, Johannes Diderik van der Waals, Wilhelm Wien, Nils Gustaf Dalén, Heike Kamerlingh Onnes, and Max von Laue. Other Nobel Prize winners featured in this book are William Henry Bragg, William Lawrence Bragg, Charles Glover Barkla, Max Planck, Johannes Stark, Charles-Édward Guillaume, and Albert Einstein.

This book will be of interest to physicists and other scientists.
