Max Planck was a German physicist who formulated an equation describing something called the "blackbody spectrum". Planck's spectrum was established when he propsosed that energy was directly proportional to frequency. Planck received the 1918 Nobel Prize for physics.His quantum theory had been successfully applied to the photoelectric effect obtained by Einstein and the atom by Niels Bohr.

Max Planck was the theoretical physicist who originated quantum theory. Our understanding of subatomic processes started with this man's work. He made many contributions to modern physics and helped lay the groundwork that helped Einstein clarify certain confusions in his theory of relativity. One of his major contributions is Planck's Postulate, which establishes the quantum structure of electromagnetic radiation. Planck was also one of the the first people to organize the Solvay Conference in Brussels 1911.

Max Planck was the first one, a mathematician, who understood Einstein's theories of relativity. Early on Einstein's hypotheses were considered as physical fictions.The special hypothesis of relativity was published in 1905 supplemented with the elaboration of E = mc (squared) in 1906. The first discovery along this formula was done by Enrico Fermi in 1936 and confirmed and named as "fission" by Lise Mietner and company in 1938. The generalized hypothesis of relativity was published in 1915 and verified in 1919 by Sir Arthur Eddington. After verification, these hypotheses graduated into theories.
