The nature of our world has always fascinated human beings.  Leukippos and his student Demokritos (about 400 BC) developed a theory that said that everything was composed of atoms which were the smallest unique component of matter that could not be further divided. It took scientists a long time to get a better insight into this matter.  JJ Thompson, Rutherford and Bohr gave improved insight into the composition of atoms. With the discovery of X-rays by Röntgen a much improved possibility to investigate the structure of matter.  In particular von Laue, and father and son Bragg developed unique methods of investigating matter. The early workers were for a considerable time not believed. The lecture will cover the explosion in insights in the chemistry of matter during essentially the last 100 years.
