German physisist born in 1868 in Rostock and died in 1957 in Freiburg im Breisgau in Germany. He studied natural science and mathematics in Rostock and Heidelberg. He obtained his doctate in 1891 in Heidelberg. From 1892 to 1902 he was an assistent at the Physics Institute at the Technical University of Karlsruhe. In 1897 he obtained his Habilitation for theoretical physics. In 1902 he became a special professor (Extraordinarius) at the University of Greifswald where he wrote his famous paper on particle light scattering. In 1917 he became Professor at the University of Halle and in 1924 he joined the University of Freiburg.
