Emily Campbell - Louis-Victor de Broglie- period 5

  • The Beginning

    The Beginning
    Louis-Victor-Pierre-Raymond, 7th duc de Broglie, known as Louis de Broglie was born in Dieppe (Seine-Maritime). He was the youngest child, 18yrs younger than his brother, Maurice. Also has a siter that is 20 years older than him.

    Emily Campbell- Louis de Broglie

  • Period: to

    The War

    Conscripted into the army. His Bother, Maurice, the 6th duc de Broglie used his influence to get him stationed at the Eiffel Tower Eiffel tower as a telegraph operator. This is where he he first started thinking about waves.
  • His Influence

    His Influence
    Albert Einstein won the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his services to theoretical physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect".The latter was pivotal in establishing quantum theory within physics
  • Beginning of wave mechanics

    Beginning of wave mechanics
    This theory set the basis of wave mehanics. It is called the Matter and wave - particle duality
  • Wave Mechanics-a new theory and controversial

    Wave Mechanics-a new theory and controversial
    In his doctoral thesis, Research on Quantum Theory, he introduced the theory of electron waves, including wave -particle duality theory of matter. He hypothesis was that any moving particle or object has a wave associated with it. This created a new field of physics, Wave Mechanics
  • Duality of the laws of nature

    Duality of the laws of nature
    de Broglie extended the theory of duality to all particles including the laws of nature. He extended it to particles (and to "crystals which revealed the effects of diffrection".)
  • The Noble Prize

    The Noble Prize
    de Broglie won the Noble Prize in 1929 for the advancements he had made in Physics. He created wave lenght mechanics.
  • Period: to

    More study on Wave Mechanics

    Devoted to the study of various extensions of Wave Mechanics: Dirac's electron Theory, the new theory of light, the general spin particles, applications of vave mechanics to nuclear physics.
  • The results of De Broglie's theory

    The results of De Broglie's theory
    Transmission electron microscopy is capable of imaging at very high resolutions than light microscopes owning to de Broglie's wavelength ov electron theory. These are used in research of cancers, virus, material science, nanotechnology, semi conductors.
  • Neutrino theory of light

    Neutrino theory of light
    "The idea introduces that the photon is equivalent to the fusion of two Dirac neutrinos. It shows the movement of the center of gravity of the two particles obeys the Maxwell equations- it implies that both the neutrino and the photon both have rest masses that are non-zero, very low".
  • A multinational laboratory

    A multinational laboratory
    In 1949, he was the first scientist to call for the establishment of a multinational laboratory to revive European research. Ultimately the European Organization for Nuclear Research was established.
  • Kalinga Prize

    Kalinga Prize
    He was presented the Kalinga Prize in 1952 for his work in popularizing scientific knowledge. He tried to explain modern physics to laymen.
  • Hidden Thermodynamics

    Hidden Thermodynamics
    This was his final amazing idea. Hidden thermodynamics of isolated particles which tried to unite three principles of physics related to action, distances and entropy (a thermodynamic property that can be used to determine the energy available for useful work).
  • The End

    The End
    He died in Louveciennes (Yvelines).
