Jan Kazimierz Danysz
Physicist, Deceased Person
1884 – 1914
Who was Jan Kazimierz Danysz?
Danysz made considerable advances on the magnetic deflection techniques of Baeyer, Hahn and Meitner, placing the source in a capillary tube under a slit, with a photographic plate in the same horizontal plane. By this means the known number of lines in the beta energy spectrum of RaB + RaC went from 9 to 27. He finished his doctoral thesis in 1913, and by 1914 he was considered by Rutherford as a leading researcher into beta decay, but he did no further work. He enlisted in the French army in 1914 and was killed in action near Cormicy.
