He carried out work in geology, mineralogy, chemistry, physics, astronomy, and mathematics. He would be the first who demonstrated the ability of ultra-microscopic metal structures and their importance in theoretical and practical terms. He was also able to completely recreate natural meteoric iron.
From 1916, he performed a series of studies in thermoelectricity.
