Robert Williams Wood was an American physicist.

He was born in Concord, Mass. May 2, 1868. As a graduate student (1891-1892) at Johns Hopkins University, Wood studied under professor of physics, Henry A. Rowland. Dr. Wood returned to teach at Hopkins in 1901 and was eventually appointed professor of experimental physics, a post he held until his retirement in 1938. His research was largely in the fields of physical optics and spectroscopy, and he is well-known for his early work with diffraction gratings which led to a new process of color photography. During the two world wars, he made contributions to technical warfare. Robert Williams Wood died in Long Island, NY August 11, 1955.
