The concept of an electron as a discrete charged particle of extremely small mass came into being late in the nineteenth century as a result of the investigations of J.J. Thomson. Since then the charge and mass of a single electron have been precisely determined, and other properties such as the angular momentum and magnetic moment of the electron have been a constant subject of investigation. The discrete electron has formed the foundation for some of the most significant advances in the twentieth century development of atomic and nuclear physics.
