The Solvay Conference, founded by the Belgian industrialist Ernest Solvay in 1912, was considered a turning point in the world of physics. Located in Brussels, the conferences were devoted to outstanding preeminent open problems in both physics and chemistry.

The most famous conference was the October 1927 Fifth Solvay International Conference on Electrons and Photons, where the world’s most notable physicists met to discuss the newly formulated quantum theory. The leading figures were Albert Einstein and Niels Bohr.

Here is the arrangement

Back: Auguste Piccard, Émile Henriot, Paul Ehrenfest, Édouard Herzen, Théophile de Donder, Erwin Schrödinger, JE Verschaffelt, Wolfgang Pauli, Werner Heisenberg, Ralph Fowler, Léon Brillouin.



Middle: Peter Debye, Martin Knudsen, William Lawrence Bragg, Hendrik Anthony Kramers, Paul Dirac, Arthur Compton, Louis de Broglie, Max Born, Niels Bohr.



Front: Irving Langmuir, Max Planck, Marie Curie, Hendrik Lorentz, Albert Einstein, Paul Langevin, Charles-Eugène Guye, CTR Wilson, Owen Richardson

The scientists on the picture:

Auguste Piccard designed ships
to explore the upper
stratosphere and the deep
seas (bathyscaphe, 1948).

Emile Henriot detected the
natural radioactivity of
potassium and rubidium. He
made ultracentrifuges possible
and pioneered the electron
microscope.

Paul Ehrenfest remarked (in
1909) that Special Relativity
makes the rim of a spinning
disk shrink but not its
diameter. This contradiction
with Euclidean geometry
inspired Einstein’s General
Relativity. Ehrenfest was a
great teacher and a pioneer of
quantum theory.
Edouard Herzen is one of only
7 people who participated in
the two Solvay conferences of
1911 and 1927. He played a
leading role in the development
of physics and chemistry during
the twentieth century.

Théophile de Donder defined
chemical affinity in terms of
the change in the free
enthalpy. He founded the
thermodynamics of irreversible
processes, which led his
student Ilya Prigogine
(1917-2006) to a Nobel prize.

Erwin Schrödinger matched
observed quantum behavior
with the properties of a
continuous nonrelativistic wave
obeying the Schrödinger
Equation. In 1935, he
challenged the Copenhagen
Interpretation, with the
famous tale of Schrödinger’s
cat. He shared the nobel prize
with Dirac.

Jules Emile Verschaffelt , the
Flemish physicist, got his
doctorate under Kamerlingh
Onnes in 1899.

Wolfgang Pauli formulated the
exclusion principle which
explains the entire table of
elements. Pauli’s sharp tongue
was legendary; he once said
about a bad paper: “This isn’t
right; this isn’t even wrong.”
Werner Heisenberg replaced
Bohr’s semi-classical orbits by
a new quantum logic which
became known as matrix
mechanics (with the help of
Born and Jordan). The relevant
noncommutativity entails
Heisenberg’s uncertainty
principle.

Sir Ralph Howard Fowler
supervised 15 FRS and 3 Nobel
laureates. In 1923, he
introduced Dirac to quantum
theory.

Léon Nicolas Brillouin
practically invented solid state
physics (Brillouin zones) and
helped develop the technology
that became the computers we
use today.

Peter Debye pioneered the use
of dipole moments for
asymmetrical molecules and
extended Einstein’s theory of
specific heat to low
temperatures by including low-
energy phonons.

Martin Knudsen revived
Maxwell’s kinetic theory of
gases, especially at low
pressure: Knudsen flow,
Knudsen number etc.

William Lawrence Bragg was
awarded the Nobel prize for
physics jointly with his father
Sir William Henry Bragg for
their work on the analysis of
the structure of crystals using
X-ray diffraction.

Hendrik Kramers was the first
foreign scholar to seek out
Niels Bohr. He became his
assistant and helped develop
what became known as Bohr’s
Institute, where he worked on
dispersion theory.

Paul Dirac came up with the
formalism on which quantum
mechanics is now based. In
1928, he discovered a
relativistic wave function for
the electron which predicted
the existence of antimatter,
before it was actually
observed.

Arthur Holly Compton figured
that X-rays collide with
electrons as if they were
relativistic particles, so their
frequency shifts according to
the angle of deflection
(Compton scattering).

Louis de Broglie discovered
that any particle has wavelike
properties, with a wavelength
inversely proportional to its
momentum (this helps justify
Schrödinger’s equation).

Max Born’s probabilistic
interpretation of Schrödinger’s
wave function ended
determinism in physics but
provided a firm ground for
quantum theory.

Irving Langmuir was an
American chemist and
physicist. His most noted
publication was the famous
1919 article “The Arrangement
of Electrons in Atoms and
Molecules”.

Max Planck originated quantum
theory, which won him the
Nobel Prize in Physics in 1918.
He proposed that exchanges of
energy only occur in discrete
lumps, which he dubbed quanta.

Niels Bohr started the quantum
revolution with a model where
the orbital angular momentum
of an electron only has
discrete values. He
spearheaded the Copenhagen
Interpretation which holds
that quantum phenomena are
inherently probabilistic.

Marie Curie was the first
woman to earn a Nobel prize
and the first person to earn
two. In 1898, she isolated two
new elements (polonium and
radium) by tracking their
ionizing radiation, using the
electrometer of Jacques and
Pierre Curie.

Hendrik Lorentz discovered and
gave theoretical explanation of
the Zeeman effect. He also
derived the transformation
equations subsequently used by
Albert Einstein to describe
space and time.

Albert Einstein developed the
general theory of relativity,
one of the two pillars of
modern physics (alongside
quantum mechanics).He is best
known in popular culture for
his mass–energy equivalence
formula (which has been dubbed
“the world’s most famous
equation”). He received the
1921 Nobel Prize in Physics “for
his services to theoretical
physics, and especially for his
discovery of the law of the
photoelectric effect”.

Paul Langevin developed
Langevin dynamics and the
Langevin equation. He had a
love affair with Marie Curie.

Charles-Eugène Guye was a
professor of Physics at the
University of Geneva. For
Guye, any phenomenon could
only exist at certain
observation scales.

Charles Thomson Rees
Wilson reproduced cloud
formation in a box. Ultimately,
in 1911, supersaturated dust-
free ion-free air was seen to
condense along the tracks of
ionizing particles. The Wilson
cloud chamber detector was
born.

Sir Owen Willans Richardson
won the Nobel Prize in Physics
in 1928 for his work on
thermionic emission, which led
to Richardson’s Law.

We were a conquered race then, trying to loose from the grip of imperialist and slave masters. Even if we had one notable, bad-ass black scientist then, the hate of color (racism) wouldn’t have secured him a seat in the above pics in the early 20th century
