Caption: Paul Langevin (1872-1946, centre), French physicist. Langevin's main work was in the field of paramagnetism, which is the mild attraction of materials to magnetic fields. He deduced a formula correlating paramagnetism with absolute temperature. During the First World War he worked on the use of ultrasonic waves in submarine detection, research which would later culminate in the development of sonar. Photographed in 1935.
