Caption: Jean Baptiste Perrin (1870-1942), French physicist. Perrin was born and educated in France, and was a professor at the Sorbonne, University of Paris, from 1910. His work on cathode rays showed that they were negatively charged particles (later called electrons). He also studied X-rays and the phenomenon of fluorescence. His work on colloids, confirming Avogadro's number and the atomic nature of matter, won Perrin the 1926 Nobel Prize in Physics. The same year, he was made Commander of the Legion of Honour. Perrin escaped France for the USA when Germany invaded in 1940. After World War II, his body was reburied in France.Restrictions:
