Georg Christoph Lichtenberg
FameRank: 6

"Georg Christoph Lichtenberg" was a Germany/German scientist, satirist, and Anglophile. As a scientist, he was the first to hold a professorship explicitly dedicated to experimental physics in Germany. Today, he is remembered for his posthumously published notebooks, which he himself called Sudelb├╝cher, a description modelled on the English language/English bookkeeping term "scrapbooks", and for his discovery of the strange tree-like patterns now called Lichtenberg figures.
