Caption: Joliot-Curies, French chemists, in their laboratory. At left is Irene Joliot-Curie (1897-1956). At right is her husband Frederic Joliot-Curie (1900-1958). Irene was the daughter of Pierre and Marie Curie. Having obtained a degree in engineering, Frederic met her while an assistant to Marie Curie. They married in 1926 and began working together on radioactivity in 1931. They were awarded the the 1935 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for producing the first artificial radio-element in 1934. Frederic's work on nuclear chain reactions, interrupted by wartime resistance activities, led to an independent French nuclear capability.
