Today In Radiation Safety History

On March 19, 1900; Jean Frédéric Joliot was born in Paris, France. Jean Frédéric Jolio graduated Ecole Superieure de Physique et de Chimiede Paris. In 1925 he became an assistant to Marie Curie, at the Radium Institute. He fell in love with her daughter Irene Curie, and soon after their marriage in 1926 they both changed their surnames to Joliot-Curie.

He collaborated with his wife on research on the structure of the atom, in particular on the projection, or recoil, of nuclei that had been struck by other particles, which was an essential step in the discovery of the neutron by Chadwick in 1932. In 1935 they were awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for their discovery of "artificial radioactivity," resulting from the creation of short-lived radioisotopes from the bombardment of stable nuclides such as boron, magnesium, and aluminum with alpha particles.

In 1937 he left the Radium Institute to become a professor at the College de France working on chain reactions and the requirements for the successful construction of a nuclear reactor that uses controlled nuclear fission to generate energy through the use of uranium and heavy water.. Joliot-Curie was one of the scientists mentioned in Einstein’s letter to President Roosevelt as one of the leading scientists on the course to chain reactions.
