Abstract

In their search for the fundamental building blocks of matter, physicists have found smaller and smaller constituents which in their turn have proven to themselves be composite systems. By the end of the 19th century, it was known that all matter is composed of atoms. However, the existence of close to 100 elements showing periodically recurring properties was a clear indication that atoms themselves have an internal structure, and are not indivisible.
