Walther Gerlach was a brilliant nuclear physicist born in late nineteenth century Germany. Educated at the University of Tübingen, he started assisting his PhD advisor even before he received his PhD degree. Later, he received his Habilitation while serving the German army during the World War I. After the war, he joined University of Frankfurt am Main and there along with Otto Stern started working on the deflections of atoms in non-homogeneous magnetic field and co-discovered spin quantization theory, famously known as Stern-Gerlach Effect. Later, he returned to his alma mater and finally joined Ludwig Maximilians University of Munich. Concurrently, he also held many important posts under the Third Reich. After the war he was interned by the Allied forces first in France, then in Belgium and finally in England. After being allowed to return to Germany he first became a visiting professor at the University of Bonn and then was appointed as the Ordinarius Professor of Experimental Physics at the University of Munich. This time too, he concurrently held many prestigious positions and towards the end of his life was awarded with Pour le Mérite by the Federal Government of Germany for his extraordinary achievements.
