French physicist, the son of Alexander Edmond Becquerel and the grandson of Antoine Cesar Becquerel, also physicists. He taught physics at the Museum of Natural History in Paris in 1892, and as a professor, occupied the same chair as his dad and granddad. His early studies were concerned with the magnetic and polarization properties of light. In 1896, he discovered that uranium salts emit radiation capable of penetrating black paper and other substances. Originally called Becquerel rays, the phenomena he discovered later became known as radioactivity. He shared the Nobel Prize in physics with Pierre and Marie Curie in 1903.
Died on 8/25/1908, Paris.
