Caption: Muller and Bednorz, 1987 Nobel physicists, in their laboratory. At left is Swiss physicist Karl Alexander Muller (born 1927). At right is German physicist Johannes Georg Bednorz (born 1950). Working at the IBM research laboratories in Zurich, Switzerland, between 1983 and 1986, Muller and Bednorz discovered that certain ceramics became superconductors above 30 Kelvin, what had been considered the theoretical limit for high-temperature superconductivity. Muller had already been working on this topic, and recruited Bednorz to join his research group. This work on superconductivity led to them sharing the 1987 Nobel Prize in Physics.Restrictions:
