Paul Villard

Gamma rays are the most strongest form of radiation. It's so strong that only lead can block it. Gamma rays are what makes nuclear radiation so dangerous. Gamma rays can damage human tissue and cause mutations.

Studied radioactivity with other scientists such as Marie Curie, Henri Becquerel, and Hans Geiger.

In 1908 Villard suggested the idea of using the ionization of air as a measure of the output of an X‑ray tube. Twenty years later, Villards idea became renowned when the Second International Congress on Radiology recommended the roentgen as the unit of radiation exposure.

The Académie des Sciences awarded him its Wilde prize in 1904 and its La Caze prize in 1907. In 1908 he succeeded physicist Eleuthère Mascart as a member of the Academy.
