Footnotes

  • The third, last and by far the scarcest of Nobel Prize winner Röntgen's three papers on X-Rays. The paper, whose title translates as 'Further Observations on the Properties of X-Rays', was read on 29 April 1897, but unlike the first two, which were published in the Sitsungsberichte of the Würzberg Society, the third appeared in the journal of the Prussian Academy of Sciences on May 20th, having been printed on the 13th (the day the present copy is inscribed). No separate off-print was apparently published.
