Heinrich Hertz was the first to send and receive radio waves. James Clerk Maxwell had mathematically predicted their existence in 1864. Between 1885 and 1889, as a professor of physics at Karlsruhe Polytechnic, he produced electromagnetic waves in the laboratory and measured their wavelength and velocity. He showed that the nature of their reflection and refraction was the same as those of light, confirming that light waves are electromagnetic radiation obeying the Maxwell equations.
