Sir Joseph John Thomson, FRS (December 18, 1856 – August 30, 1940) usually known as J. J. Thomson, was a British scientist. Thomson is credited for the discovery of the electron, of isotopes, and the invention of the mass spectrometer. His discovery of electrons was made known in 1897, and caused a sensation in scientific circles, eventually resulting in him being awarded a Nobel Prize in Physics in 1906.
