Max Planck: The Nobel Laureate

Read on to know some interesting facts about Planck.

By Tejal Mistry 21st Apr, 2016 04:51 pm

Max Karl Ernst Ludwig Planck was a German theoretical physicist who won the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1918 for his remarkable work on quantum theory.

Along with quantum theory, Planck made many contributions to theoretical physics, but his fame lies completely on his role as the originator of quantum theory, which changed our understanding of atomic and subatomic processes.
