On 3 July 2020, a public symposium is dedicated to the physicist Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen (1845-1923), whose 175th birthday is being remembered worldwide this year and who discovered X-ray radiation 125 years ago.

The Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen Symposium is jointly organized by the Swiss Physical Society (SPS), the Physikali­sche Gesellschaft Zürich (PGZ), and the Swiss Academy of Sciences (SCNAT).

Three talks will highlight Röntgen's biography, which led to the discovery of X-rays and the first Nobel Prize in Physics, as well as the current state of research and applications, in which X-rays play a fundamental role today.

The program starts after the general coffee break as follows:

11:15 - 12:00: Ralph Claessen, University of Würzburg, Röntgen's discovery: from serendipity to scientific revolution
12:00 - 12:45: Marco Stampanoni, ETH Zürich, 125 years of X-ray imaging and still eager to push further
12:45 - 13:30: Clemens Schulze-Briese, Dectris Ltd. Baden, X-rays in industry and society, what we do today and what can be done tomorrow

The public is cordially invited to attend these lectures that will be given in English; admission is free and registration is not required.
