Additional Information


  • Lise Meitner (November 17, 1878 – October 27, 1968) was an Austrian-born Swedish physicist who studied radioactivity and nuclear physics. In 1917, she and Otto Hahn discovered the first long-lived isotope of the element protactinium. In 1923, she discovered the cause, known as the Auger effect, of the emission from surfaces of electrons with 'signature' energies. The effect is named for Pierre Victor Auger, a French scientist who independently discovered the effect in 1925.
