Caption: Andre-Marie Ampere (1775-1836), French physicist, pioneer of electrodynamics, mathematician and chemist. His most famous work was from 1820, when he began to study the new field of electromagnetism. He proposed the right-hand screw rule of magnetic deflection around a wire carrying an electric current. He proved that the deflection of a compass needle by a nearby electric current is proportional to that electric current. The International System (SI) unit of electric current (the ampere) is named after him. Artwork from 'Electricite' (1911) by Max de Nansouty, part of the 'Les merveilles de la science' series of 1867-1891 by Louis Figuier.
