This Month in Physics History: Louie de Broglie

Every month I get the APS News (the dead-tree version, which I can carry on the subway), and the two parts I always read first are the Members in the Media (link is to Oct 2010 issue) and This Month in Physics History. Both of these sections help in putting a personal face on physics, and the history column helps set physics discoveries in the context of their historical setting which reads very differently from the typical text book description. This month is about Louis de Broglie.
