Ernest Rutherford (1871 - 1937) greatest contribution to physics were his investigations into the scattering of alpha rays and the nature of the inner structure of the atom.
An interactive demonstration of the Crooke's tube experiment, with a brief, but accurate explanation. This is great for revision, or for teaching if you do not have access to the real apparatus.
This applet allows users to simulate standard optic elements (lens, mirror, dielectrics, sources, apertures) and observe the ways that light rays propagate through these elements.
Sir William Lawrence Bragg (1870 - 1971) and his father (Henry) founded a new branch of science of the greatest importance and significance, the analysis of crystal structure by means of X-rays.
A well presented and comprehensive introduction to nuclear science. Nuclear structure, Antimatter, decay, Cosmic rays, etc. Excellent graphics
Johannes Stark (1874 - 1957) received the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1919 for his discovery of the Doppler effect in canal rays and of the splitting of spectral lines in electric fields.
Petrus (Peter) Josephus Wilhelmus Debye (1884 - 1966) was a physical chemist whose investigations of dipole moments, X rays, and light scattering in gases brought him the 1936 Nobel Prize for ...
Sir Joseph John Thomson (1856 - 1940) most important work was his original study of cathode rays culminating in the discovery of the electron.
The conduction of electricity in thin gases in vacuum tubes was the key to the discovery of the electron in 1897.Description of the discovery of Cathode rays.
A virtual image is formed at the position where the paths of the principal rays cross when projected backward from their paths beyond the lens.
