J.J. Thomson, an English physicist, was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1906 for the discovery of the electron and for his work on the conduction of electricity in gases. Thomson is also credited with finding the first evidence for isotopes of a stable (non-radioactive) element in 1913, as part of his exploration into the composition of canal rays (positive ions). Niels Ryberg Finsen, a Faroese-Danish physician and scientist of Icelandic descent, was awarded the Nobel Prized in Medicine and Physiology in 1903 “in recognition of his contribution to the treatment of diseases, especially lupus vulgaris, with concentrated light radiation, whereby he has opened a new avenue for medical science.”
Pioneers in their respective fields, inspired us to start the publishing organization on their names “Thomson & Ryberg” to acquire, develop and distribute knowledge by disseminating scholarly and professional materials throughout the world. The organization would stride newer heights by moving in the path laid down by them.
