My name is Willhem Conrad Röntgen I was born in Germany in May 1845.i was a mechanical engineer and a physicist. I won the Nobel Prince for my descubriment the x rays
The anecdote of the x rays start in 1895. I was experiencing with hittforff-croooke's tube and the Ruhmkorff coil. I was trying to investigate the violet fluorescence of the cathodes.
After a few experiments I decided to cover the tube with a black paper to eliminate the visible light. Suddenly I observe a a week greenish- Yellow glow of a screen made of barium platinum cyanide this glow dissapierd when we turn off the light.
We determined that the rays created a very penetrat but invisible radiation. We use photographic plates to demonstrate that the objects was more less transparent to de x rays depending on it's Thickness
The first human in which we use the x rays was my wife, she collaborated with us using her hand. We called it incognit rays or x rays because we don't know what they are
Now in our days the x rays rays use to capture bone structures in case of fractures or other cases to discover lung cancer or soft tissues diseases
