    Biography Abstract. J. J. Thomson was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in "in recognition of the great merits of his theoretical and experimental investigations on the conduction of electricity by gases.". J. J. Thomson took science to new heights with his discovery of the electron – the first subatomic particle. He also found the first evidence that stable elements can exist as isotopes and invented one of the most powerful tools in analytical chemistry – the mass spectrometer.

    Joseph John Thomson () was appointed to the Chair of Experimental Physics in the Cavendish Laboratory at the University of Cambridge at the age of 28 and started research on the. Francis William Aston was an English chemist and physicist. He is famous for being the first scientist who developed a positive-ray apparatus called "mass spectrograph" and being the first who identified two distinct isotopes of neon. Aston is also noted for his experiments with other gases and identification of naturally occurring isotopes.

A later edition, written in collaboration with his son, George, appeared in two volumes ( and ). Under Thomson's leadership the Cavendish Laboratory continued to make fundamental discoveries.

Thomson's further work on gas discharges led to Aston's mass spectrometer, and the discovery of isotopes.
