[ brô-glē ]
Prince Louis-Victor de 1892-1987

French physicist who, influenced by Albert Einstein's concept that waves can behave as particles, proposed that the opposite was also true: that electrons, for example, can behave as waves. His work developed the study of wave mechanics, which was important in the development of quantum physics, and he was awarded the Nobel Prize for physics in 1929.
