Born in 1859 in paris, pierre curie was a french physicist who spent a great deal of his life dealing in the fields of chemistry and physics during his lifetime, he was known for his work in radioactivity, magnetism, piezoelectric effect, and his work and studies with his wife marie curie in discovering new elements on the periodic table. Antoine henri becquerel (15 december 1852 - 25 august 1908) was a french physicist, nobel laureate, and the discoverer of radioactivity, for work in this field he, along with marie skłodowska-curie and pierre curie, received the 1903 nobel prize in physics. Hélène langevin-joliot is a nuclear physicist and has made a close study of marie and pierre curie's notebooks so as to obtain a picture of how their collaboration functioned marie had opened up a completely new field of research: radioactivity. Antoine henri becquerel (15 december 1852 - 25 august 1908) was a french physicist, nobel laureate, and the discoverer of radioactivity, for work in this field he, along with marie skłodowska.
Pierre and marie curie, french physicists, preparing to go cycling polish-born marie curie and her husband pierre continued the work on radioactivity started by henri becquerel in 1898, they discovered two new elements, polonium and radium. The significance of curie's scientific work is mirrored in the multiple and prestigious awards received throughout her career she is the first female nobel prize winner and the only scientist ever to receive a nobel prize in two fields of science, both in chemistry (1911) and physics (1903) without sharing them with co-recipients. Pierre curie (paris, 15 may 1859 - 19 april 1906, paris) was a french physicist he shared the 1903 nobel prize in physics with his wife, marie curie and henri becquerel , for the work on 'spontaneous radioactivity ' which becquerel discovered. Pierre curie (15 may 1859 - 19 april 1906) was a french physicist, a pioneer in crystallography, magnetism, piezoelectricity and radioactivity he was awarded the 1903 nobel prize in physics for his work in recognition of the extraordinary services he rendered by his researches on the radiation phenomena.
Curie's second nobel prize enabled her to persuade the french government into supporting the radium institute, built in 1914, where research was conducted in chemistry, physics, and medicine a month after accepting her 1911 nobel prize, she was hospitalised with depression and a kidney ailment. Marie sklodowska curie (1867-1934) was a polish and naturalized-french physicist and chemist curie was a pioneer in researching radioactivity, winning the nobel prize in physics in 1903 and chemistry in 1911. In 1903, pierre curie was tipped off that only he and henri becquerel were nominated for the nobel prize he insisted on his wife's inclusion in the nomination they were inseparable - bicycling, traveling, and discovering elements together - until his death in a road accident in 1906. In 1903, owing to the couple's work into radioactivity with physicist henri becquerel, all three were awarded the nobel prize for physics marie was devastated when, in 1906, pierre was killed after being knocked over by a horse and cart. Curie and her husband pierre shared the physics prize in 1903 marie would win it herself in the field of chemistry in 1911 other winners in the family include marie's daughter irene joliot-curie in 1935 for chemistry along with her husband frederic joliot-curie, and marie curie's son-in-law, henry labouisse, who was director of unicef at.
Marie curie was a physicist and chemist and a pioneer in the study of radiation she and her husband, pierre, discovered the elements polonium and radium together, they were awarded the nobel prize for physics in 1903, and she received another one, for chemistry, in 1911 her work with radioactive materials doomed her, however. Fascinated with the work of henri becquerel, a french physicist who discovered that uranium casts off rays weaker than the x-rays found by wilhelm conrad roentgen, marie curie took his work a few. Pierre curie was a french physicist, physical chemist, and nobel laureate most people are familiar with his wife's accomplishments ( marie curie ), yet don't realize the importance of pierre's work he pioneered scientific research in the fields of magnetism, radioactivity, piezoelectricity, and crystallography. Marie curie (7 november 1867 - 4 july 1934) was a polish and french physicist, chemist and feministshe did research on radioactivityshe was also the first woman to win a nobel prize. Curie needed a lab to work in, and a colleague introduced her to french physicist pierre curie a romance developed between the brilliant pair, and they became a scientific dynamic duo marie and pierre curie were dedicated scientists and completely devoted to one another.
Marie curie, née maria salomea skłodowska, (born november 7, 1867, warsaw, congress kingdom of poland, russian empire—died july 4, 1934, near sallanches, france), polish-born french physicist, famous for her work on radioactivity and twice a winner of the nobel prize with henri becquerel and. Pierre curie 15 may 1859 - 19 april was a french physicist, a pioneer in crystallography, magnetism, piezoelectricity and radioactivity in 1903 he received the nobel prize in physics with his wife, marie skłodowska-curie. All of that success turned on a risky decision that she made in 1897, two years after marrying pierre curie, a french physicist, and just two months after giving birth to their first daughter at the time, marie curie was working toward a doctorate in physics at the sorbonne, france's most prestigious university.
Curie kürē´ , family of french scientists pierre curie, 1859-1906, scientist, and his wife, marie sklodowska curie, 1867-1934, chemist and physicist, b warsaw, are known for their work on radioactivity and on radium. The mystery of the rays wo mysterious discoveries led marie curie to her life's work in december 1895, a german physicist, wilhelm roentgen, had discovered rays that could travel through solid wood or flesh.
Marie sklodowska was born in warsaw on 7 november 1867, the daughter of a teacher in 1891, she went to paris to study physics and mathematics at the sorbonne where she met pierre curie, professor. Pierre curie was born in paris, where his father was a general medical practitioner, on may 15, 1859 he received his early education at home before entering the faculty of sciences at the sorbonne he gained his licenciateship in physics in 1878 and continued as a demonstrator in the physics. In 1903 the french academy of sciences nominated henri becquerel and pierre -- but not marie -- curie as candidates for the physics prize if not for the intervention of a member of the nominating committee, swedish mathematician magnus goesta mittag-leffler, marie might have been denied recognition for her work.
