Walther Hermann Nernst
Walther Hermann Nernst (June 25th 1864 - November 18th 1941) is a physicist and German chemist. It undertook many research in the fields of the electrochemistry, the Thermodynamique, the Chimie of the solid and photochemistry. These discoveries also include the equation which bears its name.
W.H. Nernst was born with Briesen, in Germany. He studied the Physique and the Mathématiques at the universities of Zurich, Berlin and Graz. After having worked with Leipzig, it founded the Institute for Physical Chemical and Electrochemistry (institute of physical chemistry and electrochemistry) with Göttingen. Nernst invented, in 1898, a flashlight with a metal filament. This lamp, which succeeded the lamps with a carbon filament, is a precursor of the current incandescent lamps.
Towards 1906, Nernst establishes the law now known under the name of 3rd law of thermodynamics.
He stopped his university research in 1933. He was then professor of physics at the university of Berlin.
- In 1914, it was one of the signatories of the Manifeste of the 93
