Caption: Antoine Cesar Becquerel (1788-1878), French physicist and chemist and one of the founders of electrochemistry. Becquerel made a special study of magnetism and the voltaic cell, and invented a number of instruments, including an electromagnetic balance and a differential galvanometer. His experiments led to the synthesis of mineral substances and his name is linked to the discovery of piezoelectricity. He was interested in meteorology, climate and agriculture. He was the grandfather of Nobel Physics laureate Henri Becquerel. Artwork from 'Electricite' (1911) by Max de Nansouty, part of the 'Les merveilles de la science' series of 1867-1891 by Louis Figuier.
