    First edition in English, first impression. Kazimierz Fajans (1887-1975) was a pioneer in physical chemistry and the study of radiation. In 1910 he was hired by the lab of Ernest Rutherford, just as Rutherford was making his monumental discovery of atomic structure. Fajans continued this research in Europe, working in Germany until fleeing Nazi persecution in 1935, then holding academic positions in England and the United States. Learn More
