The German physicist who discovered X-rays
Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen was a German physicist. In 1895 he was working with cathode rays when he discovered a different kind of electromagnetic radiation. Since the radiation was unknown at that time, he called it the X-rays. He received the ﬁrst Nobel Prize in physics in 1901 for this discovery.
