Transcript of Julius Plucker

Julius Plucker By: Jared Bailey Julius Plucker was born on June 16, 1801. In Elberfeld, Duchy of Berg. His nationality is German. Julius Plucker went to Paris in 1828 where he got interested in a great school of french geometers. In 1847 he turned to physics, accepting the chair of physics at Bonn working on magnetism, electronics and atomic physics. He anticipated Kirchhoff and Bunsen in indicating that spectral lines were characteristic for each chemical substance. In 1865 Plücker returned to the field of geometry and invented
what was known as line geometry in the nineteenth century. Julius received the Copley Medal from the royal society in 1866. He found that the discharge caused a fluorescent glow to form on the glass walls
of the vacuum tube, and that the glow could be made to shift by applying an electromagnet
to the tube, this created a magnetic field.
It was later shown that the glow was produced by cathode rays. In 1858 Julius discovered the cathode ray tube. A cathode ray tube is a vacuum tube that produces images
when its phosphorescent surface is struck by electron beams. Julius Plucker died in 1868. Julius Plucker died in 1868. Works Cited:
