French nuclear physicist and author who specialized in X-ray research. He was one of the leading authorities in experimental particle physics and was the first to discover evidence of a new type of subatomic particle. He wrote numerous books including "Cosmic Rays," 1945 and "Atoms and Men," 1958.

Leprince-Ringuet received his education at the Polytechnic School and the School of Electricity and Science. He was a professor at the Polytechnic School in the physics department from 1936-69 and lectured at the College of France from 1959-72. He was chief of the atomic energy group from 1951-71 and president of the European Center for Nuclear Research from 1964-66. He was a member of the Academy of Sciences as well as l'Académie française.

He was married with six children and enjoyed painting, tennis and skiing.
