Caption: Johannes Georg Bednorz (born 1950), German physicist. Bednorz studied at the University of Munster, before carrying out his PhD studies at the ETH Zurich, in Switzerland. His major work on superconductivity was carried out at the IBM research laboratories in Zurich, where he worked with Karl Alexander Muller (born 1927) from 1982. Between 1983 and 1986, Bednorz and Muller discovered that certain ceramics became superconductors above 30 Kelvin, what had been considered the theoretical limit for high-temperature superconductivity. This work led to them sharing the 1987 Nobel Prize in Physics. Photographed in 1988.Restrictions:
