X-Ray 2020

On November 8, 1895, Prof. Dr. Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen in the Physics Institute of the Julius Maximilians University in Würzburg named the rays that he named, which he initially called X rays. His discovery of a completely new type of radiation marks the 125th time in 2020. The first Nobel Prize winner for physics, born on March 27, 1845 in Remscheid-Lennep, would celebrate his 175th birthday in the X-ray year 2020.

Universities, colleges, cities, societies, associations and institutions have come together to honor these important chapters of German scientific history.

The Roentgen Memorial is more than happy to participate in these activities.
