Annalen der Physik is one of the best-known and oldest (since 1790) physics journals worldwide. 1790 was a common year starting on Friday (see link for calendar). ... The first few hydrogen atom electron orbitals shown as cross-sections with color-coded probability density. ...

The journal publishes original papers in the areas of experimental, theoretical, applied and mathematical physics and related areas. All papers are strictly peer-reviewed before publication and reflect the progress made in the different areas of physics.

Many very important articles about scientific discoveries have been first published in the journal, including Albert Einstein's Annus Mirabilis Papers in 1905 that provide much of the foundation of modern physics. Albert Einstein, photographed in 1947 by Oren J. Turner. ... Einstein, in 1905, when he wrote the Annus Mirabilis Papers The Annus Mirabilis Papers (from Latin, Annus mirabilis, for extraordinary year) are the papers of Albert Einstein published in the Annalen der Physik Scientific journal in 1905. ... 1905 (MCMV) was a common year starting on Sunday (see link for calendar). ...

Some of the most famous papers published in Annalen der Physik were:

In the early 20th century Germany was the centre of physics research in the world. Annalen der Physik was published in German like most of the scientific physics-related literature of that time. Since then, English has become the dominant language in physics and the importance of Annalen der Physik has diminished. It is now published in English. The photoelectric effect is the emission of electrons from matter upon the absorption of electromagnetic radiation, such as ultraviolet radiation or x-rays. ... Heinrich Hertz Heinrich Rudolf Hertz (February 22, 1857 - January 1, 1894), was the German physicist for whom the hertz, the SI unit of frequency, is named. ... 1887 (MDCCCLXXXVII) is a common year starting on Saturday (click on link for calendar) of the Gregorian calendar or a common year starting on Monday of the Julian calendar. ... The word light is defined here as electromagnetic radiation of any wavelength; thus, X-rays, gamma rays, ultraviolet light, microwaves, radio waves, and visible light are all forms of light. ... Albert Einstein, photographed in 1947 by Oren J. Turner. ... 1905 (MCMV) was a common year starting on Sunday (see link for calendar). ... Three different views of Brownian motion, with 32 steps, 256 steps, and 2048 steps denoted by progressively lighter colors. ... Mass-energy equivalence is where mass has an energy equivalence, and energy has a mass equivalence. ... Special relativity (SR) or the special theory of relativity is the physical theory published in 1905 by Albert Einstein. ... 1907 (MCMVII) was a common year starting on Tuesday (see link for calendar) of the Gregorian calendar (or a common year starting on Wednesday of the 13-day-slower Julian calendar). ... Absolute zero is the point on the thermodynamic (absolute) temperature scale where all kinetic motion in the particles comprising matter ceases and they are at complete rest in the “classic” (non-quantum mechanical) sense. ... Otto Stern Otto Stern (February 17, 1888 – August 17, 1969) was an German physicist and Nobel laureate. ... 1913 (MCMXIII) was a common year starting on Wednesday. ... General relativity (GR) or general relativity theory (GRT) is the theory of gravitation published by Albert Einstein in 1915. ... 1916 (MCMXVI) was a leap year starting on Saturday (link will take you to calendar). ...



Noted editors include:

(Issues of the journal before 1900 are often referenced with the editor's name - thus 'Gilbert's Annalen' or 'Wiedemann's Annalen'). Johann Christian Poggendorff. ...

Wilhelm Carl Werner Otto Fritz Franz Wien (January 13, 1864 – August 30, 1928) was a German physicist who, in 1893, used theories about heat and electromagnetism to compose Wiens displacement law, which relates the maximum emission of a blackbody to its temperature. ... Max Karl Ernst Ludwig Planck (April 23, 1858 – October 4, 1947) was a German physicist. ...
