Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen fue un físico alemán, de la Universidad de Wurzburgo, que el 8 de noviembre de 1895 produjo radiación electromagnética en las longitudes de onda correspondiente a los actualmente llamados rayos X. En los años siguientes, Röntgen publicó unos estudios «sobre un nuevo tipo de rayos», que fueron traducidos al inglés, francés, italiano y ruso.

Por su descubrimiento fue galardonado en 1901 con el primer premio Nobel de Física. El premio se concedió oficialmente «en reconocimiento de los extraordinarios servicios que ha brindado para el descubrimiento de los notables rayos que llevan su nombre». Röntgen donó la recompensa monetaria a su universidad. De la misma forma que Pierre Curie haría varios años más tarde, rechazó registrar cualquier patente relacionada a su descubrimiento por razones éticas. Tampoco quiso que los rayos llevaran su nombre, sin embargo en alemán los rayos X se siguen conociendo como Röntgenstrahlen .

La Universidad de Wurzburgo le otorgó el grado honorario de Doctor en Medicina. También en su honor recibe tal nombre la unidad de medida de la exposición a la radiación, establecida en 1928: véase Roentgen .

„I did not think; I investigated.“

— Wilhelm Röntgen
Context: I was working with a Crookes tube covered by a shield of black cardboard. A piece of barium platino-cyanide paper lay on the bench there. I had been passing a current through the tube, and I noticed a peculiar black line across the paper. … The effect was one which could only be produced, in ordinary parlance, by the passage of light. No light could come from the tube, because the shield which covered it was impervious to any light known, even that of the electric arc. … I did not think; I investigated. I assumed that the effect must have come from the tube, since its character indicated that it could come from nowhere else. I tested it. In a few minutes there was no doubt about it. Rays were coming from the tube which had a luminescent effect upon the paper. I tried it successfully at greater and greater distances, even at two metres. It seemed at first a new kind of invisible light. It was clearly something new, something unrecorded.

„I am pursuing my investigations, and as fast as my results are verified I shall make them public.“

— Wilhelm Röntgen
Context: I am not a prophet, and I am opposed to prophesying. I am pursuing my investigations, and as fast as my results are verified I shall make them public.

„Having discovered the existence of a new kind of rays, I of course began to investigate what they would do. … It soon appeared from tests that the rays had penetrative power to a degree hitherto unknown.“

Context: Having discovered the existence of a new kind of rays, I of course began to investigate what they would do. … It soon appeared from tests that the rays had penetrative power to a degree hitherto unknown. They penetrated paper, wood, and cloth with ease; and the thickness of the substance made no perceptible difference, within reasonable limits. … The rays passed through all the metals tested, with a facility varying, roughly speaking, with the density of the metal. These phenomena I have discussed carefully in my report to the Würzburg society, and you will find all the technical results therein stated.
