Invented the battery, in 1800 an Italian built the first battery, a device that provided a steady current of electricity.
Passed electrical current through substances to decompose them. Isolated the elements Potassium, Magnesium, Strontium, Barium, and Calcium
Davy's protege, defined elctrolysis, electrolyte, electrodes, anode, cathode, ion, anion, and cation
Discovered Cathode Rays by charging the air inside a glass tube and finding green particles
Discovered the proton, particles traveling in the opposite direction of the electrons in a cathode ray tube.
Performed the oil drop experiment in order to determine the mass and charge of electrons
Discovered that uranium salts emitted rays that produced an image on a photographic plate.
(Marie Sklodowska) Curie
A graduate student of Becquerel's. Coined the term Radioactivity. Worked with husband, Pierre, in isolating Polonium and Radium.
Defined alpha, beta, and gamma rays. Gold foil experiment proves there is a dense, positively charged nucleus
(Louis) de Broglie
Hypothesized that matter behaves like a wave, and developed an equation to calculate the wavelength of every object
