Their work, which focused on radioisotopes emitting beta radiation, led in 1917 to the discovery of protactinium. Yet Hahn's fame is due to his discovery of nuclear fission in 1938. Right after James Chadwick identified the neutron, physicists and chemists launched enthusiastically into creating isotopes by bombarding Virtanen, Arturi Ilmari (Helsinki, Finland, January 15, 1895 - Helsinki, November 11, 1973 ). Finnish biochemist. Nobel Prize for Chemistry for investigations directed toward improving the production and storage of proteinrich green fodder.
His first centre of interest was the chemistry of glass colour, which is sometimes caused by very fine particles scattered through the bulk of the glass. This research led him into the field of colloids, substances formed by ultramicroscopic particles suspended in a liquid such as water. Such particles escaped ordinary microscopic observation and were therefore not well known. To better study this peculiar organisation of matter, he invented in 1903 with Siedentopf, a physicist working for the Zeiss Company, an ultramicroscope in which light was beamed through the colloidal particle suspension perpendicularly to the direction of observation.
Appointed lecturer, he continued this work, which led him to establish firmly the existence of molecules. He thus confirmed Dalton's hypothesis, proposed 120 years earlier, which some scientists as highly regarded as Wilhelm Ostwald still contested. The observation of Brownian motion demonstrated the existence of collisions between the colloid particles and the molecules of the surrounding liquid. Thanks to Zsigmondy's microscope, Svedberg observed that colloid particles obey the laws of classical physics.
