...Arthur Korn (May 20, 1870, Breslau, Germany – December 21/December 22, 1945, Jersey City, New Jersey) was a German-born physicist, mathematician and inventor. He was involved in the development of the fax machine, specifically the transmission of photographs or telephotography, known as the Bildetelegraph, related to early attempts at developing a practical mechanical television system.
Korn was the son of Jewish Moritz and Malwine Schottlaender.He studied physics and mathematics in Leipzig at the age of 15 . In 1914 he accepted the chair of physics at the Berlin Institute of Technology.
Korn experimented and wrote on long-distance photography, the phototelautograph. He pioneered the use of light sensitive selenium cells which took over from the function of the stylus,[ and used a Nernst lamp as a light source. On the 18th October, 1906, he managed to transmit a photograph of Crown Prince William over a distance of 1800 km.[In 1924 John Lodge Baird televised objects in outline. In 1925, he televised human faces. Baird was the first person to televise pictures of objects in motion..while other inventors developed means to have the images correspond with sound.
