All the employees of Nucletudes have learned with sadness the sudden demise of his founder Jean-Jacques Samueli, arisen on February 22nd, 2014.
Chairman and CEO of Nucletudes between 1966 and 1984, then CEO until 1999, he led his company during 33 years.
PhD in science, he was also keen on literature. He successfully became a recognized author on the history of science and published several books that are considered today as references. He has been passionate about science throughout his life: he wrote his last book “Standard model of particles physics: from the electron to the Higgs boson” in 2013.
All the past and present employees of Nucletudes owe a lot to J.J. Samueli, not only because he created this company but also because he managed to put the company on the right tracks so that it is still today a key player in radiation hardening.
Jean-Jacques Samueli will be remembered as a brilliant character, with a natural charisma, and a boiling mind able to breed high value thoughts.
All the employees of Nucletudes feel an immense sorrow, and wish to express their deepest sympathies to his family and friends.
