Heinrich Hertz and Electromagnetic Waves

Heinrich Rudolf Hertz (1857-1894) was a German physicist who first conclusively proved the existence of electromagnetic waves theorized by James Clerk Maxwell's electromagnetic theory of light. Hertz proved the theory by engineering instruments to transmit and receive radio pulses using experimental procedures that ruled out all other known wireless phenomena. The scientific unit of frequency - cycle per second - was named the "hertz" in his honor. (from wikipedia.org)
