Caption: Perrin with sound-ranging equipment. At left, in uniform, is the French physicist Jean Baptiste Perrin (1870-1942), helping to operate sound-ranging equipment in France. Perrin was a professor at the Sorbonne, University of Paris, from 1910. The topics he studied included cathode rays, X-rays and 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:
