Hi,

#8155. Name the German physicist (16 July 1855 in Braunschweig – 15 August 1923 in Wolfenbüttel) . He is credited with coining the phrase "atomic energy."

He and Elster published works on meteorology, nuclear physics, and the photoelectric effects. He recognized the law of radioactive decay in 1899 and coined the term atomic energy. In 1893 he invented the photocell.

#8156. What invention led to Albert Hoyt Taylor (January 1, 1879 in Chicago, IL – December 11, 1961 in Los Angeles, CA),  an American electrical engineer who made important early contributions and  Leo C. Young (12 January 1891 – 16 January 1981) was an American radio engineer who had many accomplishments during a long career at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory?  (Although self-educated, he was a member of a small, creative team which some attributed to the developing the world's first true system).
