Heinrich Rubens (30 March 1865, Wiesbaden, Nassau, Germany – 17 July 1922, Berlin, Germany) was a German physicist.

He played a direct role in the genesis of the quantum theory, providing the experimental results that pushed Max Planck to provide the first quantum hypothesis.[1]

He also combined scientific ideas to create the Rubens' tube. He was awarded the Rumford Medal in 1910.
