He investigated methods to generate extremely high angular velocities, and found that suitably placed air-jets can be used to spin tops at very high speeds - this technique was later used to construct ultracentrifuges. He was a pioneer in the study of the electron microscope.
  • He also studied birefringence and molecular vibrations. He obtained his DSc in physics in 1912 the Sorbonne, Paris, under Marie Curie.
