Rene Just Haüy
He is the brother of Valentine Haüy, which devoted its life to the blind men. In 1793, it determines, in collaboration with Antoine Lavoisier, the value of the new unit of mass, known under the name of Kilogram, for the Commission of the weights and measures of the Academy of Science, of which it is elected member in 1783. Holder of one pulpit to the Faculty of arts of the Sorbonne, it teaches mineralogy with the national Muséum of natural history of 1802 with 1822.
Haüy showed that the shape of the crystals resulted from the stacking of small volumes of matter which it named integral molecules, and whose its pupil, Gabriel Delafosse will deduce the concept of mesh in 1840.
Died in 1822, it rests with the cemetery of the Father-Lachaise to Paris.
