Frédéric Joliot-Curie and the first French atomic reactor
P. Radvanyi1

Half a century ago Frédéric Joliot (1900-1958) passed away.With his wife, Irène Joliot- Curie, he had discovered artificial radioactivity in 1934, for which they were awarded the Nobel prize in chemistry in 1935. This led ultimately to the start-up, under his leadership, of the first French nuclear reactor ZOÉ, in 1948.
