A physicist is a scientist who is trained to study the interaction between matter and energy of the physical world. Though a degree in physics qualifies a person as a physicist, study of the subject is far and varied and does not but restrain physicists to but a single topic. There are many sub-fields in which they can specialize. Like every other country in the world, Austria too has had a long list of physicists, dealing in invention, analysis and improvement of the physical phenomenon. While some discovered new phenomenon, others developed the existing and still others analysed for newer creations. While Austrian Nobel laureates such as Philipp Eduard Anton von Lenard, Erin Schrodinger, Victor Francis Hess and Wolfgang Pauli are universally popular for their feats in physicists, the country has been home to many more skilful and immensely talented physicists such as Christian Doppler, Josef Finger, Johann Josef Loschmidt, Ernst Mach, Lise Meitner and Gernot Zippe. Each of them has contributed immensely to the global platform of physics through their inventions, discoveries, analysis and studies.
