Oskar Klein

Oskar Klein (1894-1977) was 23 years old when he came to Niels Bohr in Copenhagen. He stayed there until 1931 at which time he became professor in theoretical physics at Stockhom University where he stayed until his retirement in 1962. Klein had a broad interest in various fields of physics but is perhaps best known for the Klein-Gordon equation and the Klein-Nishina equation. His attempts to unify general relativity and electromagnetism by introducing a five-dimensional space-time dates back to 1926 and is today known as Kaluza-Klein theory.
