  • Great Names in Physics at LMU Munich


    The Faculty of Physics is closely connected with the names of great physicists who have worked or are still working at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität. In 1900, Wilhelm C. Röntgen took over the Chair for Experimental Physics and in 1901 received the first Nobel Prize in physics. Röntgen's successor was Wilhelm Wien (1911 Nobel Prize), whose name lives on in Wien's Displacement Law. The later Munich professor Walter Gerlach played a major role in the discovery of angular quantization of spin (Stern-Gerlach-Experiment). more
