Maxwell's Homepage

James Clerk Maxwell

"This velocity is so nearly the velocity of light, that it seems we have strong reason to conclude that light itself (including radiant heat and other radiations if any) is an electromagnetic disturbance in the form of waves propagated through the electromagnetic field according to electromagnetic laws."

"I have also a paper afloat, with an electromagnetic theory of light, which, till I am convinced to the contrary, I hold to be great guns."

J. C. Maxwell, in a letter to C. H. Cay, January 5, 1865.
