Born to French nobility, Maurice de Broglie was the sixth Duke de Broglie, and served as a military officer for more than a decade before studying physics. His primary contributions to science were the invention of x-ray spectroscopy, and the first observation of an absorption edge. Broglie also conducted important early studies in cosmic radiation and nuclear physics. His younger brother, Louis de Broglie, discovered the wave nature of electrons, and won the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1929.
