Caption: Brian David Josephson (born 1940), British physicist, reading a book. Josephson studied at the University of Cambridge, England, and discovered the Josephson effect in solid-state physics in 1962 while still a graduate student. It was this work that earned him a share of the 1973 Nobel Prize in Physics. He has also worked in the USA at the University of Illinois, and Cornell University, and also in India. Josephson is also well known for his open but sceptical stance on paranormal matters. He is currently (as of 2007) a professor at Cambridge University, working in the Theory of Condensed Matter research group. He was awarded the Hughes Medal of the Royal Society in 1972.
