Pierre Curie
Pierre Curie was a 19th century French scientist whose work with his wife, Marie Curie, led to some of the most important discoveries in modern physics and chemistry. After an unconventional education at home, Curie attended the Sorbonne in Paris, where he became an assistant teacher in 1878. By 1880 he and his older brother, Jacques, had earned notice for their work demonstrating the electrical potential of quartz crystals when pressure was applied, a phenomenon called piezoelectricity.
