Biography signed: "Alfred Kastler," 8¼x4¾ (separated into two halves, 4x4¾). In French. Alfred Kastler (1902-1984) was a French physicist born in Alsace, a province transferred from Germany to France at the end of WWI, who won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1966 for the discovery and development of optical methods for studying Hertzian resonances in atoms. This research into "optical pumping" was important in the development of lasers. Kastler studied at Paris' École Normale Supérieure in 1920 and, after serving as a science teacher at Bordeaux and Clermont-Ferrand in France and Louvain in Belgium, returned there to teach from 1941 to 1968. He then served as director of research at the National Center of Scientific Research until his retirement in 1972. Completely separated down the center. Slightly toned. Slight creases. Otherwise, fine condition.
