1. Explaining the photoelectric effect as being tied to the quantum nature of light
2. Explaining the math behind brownian motion vs. the size of atoms

unfortunately his influence in making nuclear bomb was not one of his achievements and I am sure he regretted it. his profound work in general relativity (special relativity, in, well, a special case of the more general theory) was staggering and ahead of his time. his other very well known work is on photo-electric effect. funny though is the fact that although his work on photo-electricity corroborated nicely the ideas of quantum physics, he himself was opposed to it for a LONG time. one of his infamous quotes is ‘God does not play dice’, he did not want to accept… Read more »

Both Einstein and Szilard were involved with the Manhattan Project and the development of the atomic bomb. During that time they were collecting royalties on the “Einstein” refrigerator. This Albert Einstein invention was the only invention patented by Einstein who became more famous for his theories on physics rather than for his work in refrigeration, although scientists are now investigating this technology. Einstein was very familiar with patents and licensing. When Einstein graduated from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology he couldn’t find work as a teacher. Through a fellow student, he got a job as an assistant patent examiner… Read more »

Probably one of the biggest achievements of Einstein was in the development of quantum mechanics. This would be in 1911 when he did his experiments with the photoelectric effect, which proved that energy was quantized, this backed up Planck`s findings as well as others who led the movement for the development of QM!

Probably the biggest!
