The name of Barkla will always be distinguished on account of his fundamental researches on Rontgen rays. In 1905 he made the discovery that scattered X-rays are polarized, but only to a certain degree. He also established the fact that each chemical element can radiate Röntgen rays having properties characteristic of that element, and in this way he anticipated the assignment to each element of an ‘atomic number’, the number being, in general, about one-half the atomic weight.
