German physical chemist and physicist, best remembered for developing the third law of thermodynamics.
The Nernst heat theorem, which he formulated in 1906, was used to develop the third law of thermodynamics, and his atom chain reaction theory followed in 1916. Nernst’s other important accomplishments included inventing the Nernst lamp and developing the ‘Neo-Bechstein-Flügel’ electric piano. His later career was dedicated to astrophysics and other aspects of electroacoustics.
Nernst was an outspoken opponent of Hitler and the Nazi party. This criticism effectively meant the end of his career once the Nazis came to power in 1933.
He receiving many prizes over his career, including the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1920.
He died 18 November 1941, Zibelle, Germany.
