10 is probably an eukaryotic cell undergoing karyokinesis.

1) Ampere
2) Bohr
3) Curie
4) D
5) Einstein
6) Fermat
7) Galilei
8) Huygens
9) Ioffe
10) Jenner (I'm not fully happy with this one)
11) Kendall
12) Lagrange
13) Mendelev
14) Newton
15) Oppenheimer
16) Plank
17) Qurra
18) Rogers

Jenner seems tenuous, but the image, must be of a cell and Jenner is the only biologist beginning with J that I can think of, but all the others are physicists or mathemeticians.

I can't get D. I'd like it to be De Broglie, Dirac or Democritus, but can't see why the symbol would denote either. Tenuously, it could be related to a path intergral for Dirac. The only thing that I recall close to that symbol is a RF cavity. Maybe as an outside guess it can be an ion trap or a CRT and we can make Dehmelt work. Maybe even Da Vinci. The whole puzzle, indicates that the artist is a fan of Da Vinci.

Looks like Dicke had something to do with microwave equipment. Found at reference 3 here.

Best answer! Amost fully solved.

Some guesses at the others:

7) Hole migration in a semi-conductor
8) Some kind of representation of a potential well.
10) Cell sub-division.
You are a legend!!!!! Thanks for your forum post mate, really appreciated that and great insight.

Funny you mention that. I worked with the developer to explain the last riddle in 2011/2012 and Da Vince played a big part.

If you are curious, search for the 'Trials HD Riddle' on YouTube. It has about 80,000 views and I made that to explain the riddle in the prior game.

Doh. For some reason I was sure it was cellular fission, but that image can equally depict nuclear fission, which solves J.

Just need to work out what the D means.
