Renowned French physicist who, while trying to polarize X-rays, which had been recently discovered by Roentgen, claimed in 1903 to have discovered a new invisible radiation which he called N-rays (in honor of his home town of Nancy). He used prisms and lenses made of aluminum to focus and disperse the N-Rays, and he detected the spectrum by passing a fine thread, coated with fluorescent material, across the focal plane. N-Rays, as it turns out, do not exist and Blondlot's researches were discredited.
