Caption

Frederic Joliot-Curie (1900-1958), French physicist, holding a piece of laboratory apparatus. Originally Jean-Frederic Joliot, in 1925 he became assistant to Marie Curie, marrying her daughter Irene in 1926. They began working on radioactivity as the Curies had done before them. In 1934, they jointly discovered the first artificial radioactivity in an isotope of phosphorus, which earned them the 1935 Nobel Prize in Chemistry. Joliot-Curie's subsequent work on nuclear chain reactions led to the development of an independent French nuclear capability. Photographed at the Radium Institute, in Paris, also known as the Curie Institute.
