  Heinrich Rudolf Hertz - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Hertz was born in Hamburg, Germany, to Gustav Ferdinand Hertz, whose father converted from Judaism to Lutheranism and married into a Lutheran family, and Anna Elisabeth Pfefferkorn, herself a Lutheran.
Hertz had always had a deep interest in meteorology probably derived from his contacts with Willhelm von Bezold (he was Hertz's professor in a laboratory course at the Munich Polytechnic in the summer of 1878).
Hertz, however, did not contribute much to the field himself except for some early articles as an assistant to Helmholtz in Berlin, including research on the evaporation of liquids, a new kind of hygrometer, and a graphical means of determining the properties of moist air when subjected to adiabatic changes.

Hertz proved that electricity can be transmitted in electromagnetic waves, which travel at the speed of light and which possess many other properties of light.
Before Hertz gained professorships in Karlsruhe and Bonn, he had studied under the famous scientist Hermann von Helmholtz in Bonn, and it was Helmholtz who encouraged Hertz to attempt to win the science prize that led to some of Hertz's most important discoveries.
From 1885 to 1889 Hertz became the first person to broadcast and receive radio waves, and to establish the fact that light was a form of electromagnetic radiation.

  Though Gustav was of Jewish descent and raised a Lutheran “neither he nor Anna Elisabeth were concerned to raise their child in a religious atmosphere [1].”  The family focused on the children’s intellectual and moral character and it is evident that Heins’ father had great influence on his development.
As Hertz continued his education, it is evident that he went through a process of discovering where his true interests lay.
In addition to the generation of electromagnetic waves, Hertz showed that conductive materials reflect the waves and non conductors allow them to pass through, and also that they can be focused by concave reflectors.
