  • Intro of J.J. Thomson• Sir Joseph John "J. J." Thomson (18 December 1856 – 30 August 1940) was a British physicist and Nobel laureate. He is credited with discovering electrons and isotopes, and inventing the mass spectrometer. Thomson was awarded the 1906 Nobel Prize in Physics for the discovery of the electron and for his work on the conduction of electricity in gases.
  • What did he prove ?????????• Thomson, in 1897, was the first to suggest that the fundamental unit was over 1000 times smaller than an atom, suggesting the sub-atomic particles now known as electrons. Thomson discovered this through his explorations on the properties of cathode rays. View slide

  • His other works….• In 1905 Thomson discovered the natural radioactivity of potassium.• In 1906 Thomson demonstrated that hydrogen had only a single electron per atom. Previous theories allowed various numbers of electrons.
  • Awards• Royal Medal (1894)• Hughes Medal (1902)• Nobel Prize for Physics (1906)• Elliott Cresson Medal (1910)• Copley Medal (1914)• Franklin Medal (1922)
  • In 1991 the thomson (symbol: Th)was proposed as a unit to measure mass-to-charge ratio in mass spectrometry.
