On November 8,German physics professor Wilhelm Röntgen stumbled on X-rays while experimenting with Lenard tubes and Crookes tubes and began studying them. He wrote an initial report "On a new kind of ray: A preliminary communication" and on Decem submitted it to Würzburg's Physical-Medical Society journal.

If the cathode rays within the discharge-apparatus are deflected by means of a magnet, it is observed that the x-rays proceed from another spot — namely, from that which is the new terminus of the cathode.

Röntgen’s original paper, “On A New Kind Of Rays” (Über eine neue Art von Strahlen), was published on 28 December On 5 Januaryan Austrian newspaper reported Röntgen’s discovery of a new type of radiation.

Röntgen was awarded an honorary Doctor of Medicine degree from the University of Würzburg after his discovery. On 28 DecemberWilhelm C Röntgen presented his paper 'Über eine neue Art von Strahlen' ('On a New Kind of Rays') to the Würzburg Physical Medical Society [].These rays had been labelled with the letter 'x' to represent their unknown nature, which is understandable at a time when there was no knowledge of this strange radiation, and the nature and characteristics of.

X-rays were discovered on November 8,by Wilhelm Röntgen (–) of the University of Würzburg. Quite serendipitously, he found that an active vacuum tube, shielded with a cardboard sleeve so that no visible or ultraviolet light could come out, caused fluorescence on a light- and UV-sensitive screen some distance away.

Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen, Röntgen also spelled Roentgen, (born MaLennep, Prussia [now Remscheid, Germany]—died FebruMunich, Germany), physicist who was a recipient of the first Nobel Prize for Physics, infor his discovery of X-rays, which heralded the age of modern physics and revolutionized diagnostic medicine.

Röntgen placed wood, paper notebooks, and a book of around 1, pages between the crystals and the tube, but none of them could stop the mysterious rays in their tracks.

When he ultimately held his hand in the path of the rays, he made probably the most exciting discovery of his lifetime: On the screen, he could see the shadows of the bones.

The rays flew through the metal and the book as if neither had been there, and the waves of light, rolling cloud-like over the paper, showed no change in brightness.

Photographed for. X-rays have much higher energy and much shorter wavelengths than ultraviolet light, and scientists usually refer to x-rays in terms of their energy rather than their wavelength. This is partially because x-rays have very small wavelengths, between and 3 nanometers, so small that some x-rays are no bigger than a single atom of many elements.But Röntgen was looking elsewhere, and the light coming through the corner of his eye focused on the most sensitive part of the retina, the parafoveal region (Seliger ) 1.

This faint glimmer of fluorescence led Röntgen to the discovery of x-rays, also known as the "invisible light." Invisible. X rays could not be seen.G. F. Barker’s English translation of Röntgen’s report, “On a new type of rays (preliminary communication),” can be found in Otto Glasser’s book “Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen and the Early History of the Roentgen Rays” (, Norman Publishing, San Francisco).
