Soon after the discovery of radio waves by Hertz in 1888 the idea that the Sun must emit this radiation was suggested. A number of scientists from different nations then attempted to detect this emission, and one of these was the French astronomer, Charles Nordmann. This paper provides biographical information on Nordmann before discussing his attempt to detect solar emisson in 1901 and the reasons he was unsuccessful.
