Caption: Robert Coleman Richardson (born 1937), US physicist. Richardson studied at Virginia Tech and Duke University, and then carrying out research in the fields of condensed matter and low-temperature physics. At Duke University, he had inherited the liquid helium equipment used by William M. Fairbank (1917-1989). From 1966, Richardson worked at Cornell University. It was in 1972 at Cornell, in the Laboratory of Atomic and Solid State Physics, that he and his colleagues (David Lee and Douglas Osheroff) cooled helium-3 sufficiently that it became a superfluid. This work earned the trio the 1996 Nobel Prize in Physics.Restrictions:
