Extract

After more than 50 years dedicated to scientific research and to the dissemination of knowledge, Dr Jacques Labeyrie recently passed away at the age of 91. Upon graduating from the Ecole Supérieure de Physique et Chimie Industrielle de la Ville de Paris (1940–43), he became the assistant to Frédéric Joliot-Curie at the Collège de France. With Joliot's recommendation, he was recruited in 1946 to the Commissariat à l'Energie Atomique (CEA), where he stayed until his retirement in 1985. He was named Head of the Section d'Electronique Physique (later known as the Service d'Electronique Physique) of the CEA in 1955, which he managed until 1982.
