Ask people around the globe as to who is the most famous physicist they know of, and without a doubt the answer would be Albert Einstein! That perhaps best explains the contribution of German physicists in the world forum. Given the fact that Einstein’s influence has been magnanimous, one cannot forget the works of other brilliantly-minded German physicists, their revolutionary work creating a stir in the study of this particular branch of science. Max Planck, Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz, Heinrich Hertz, Sir Rudolf Ernst Peierls, Werner Heisenberg are some of the gems of physics that Germany gave the world. Each of them and many others have contributed in all the major branches of physics, classical mechanics, quantum mechanics, theory of relativity and electromagnetism. It is through their observation, research and experiments that they discovered physical laws and came up with theories and practical experiments that best explained the functioning of matter and related concepts. Gravitational force, nuclear interactions, electromagnetism were unknown phenomena that were eventually perceived, detected, explored and later presented to the world by physicists.
