Caption: Fritz Wolfgang London (1900-1954), German-US physicist. London was born in Breslau, then part of Germany, and studied in Munich. In 1933, with the rise of Nazi Germany, he resigned his post at the University of Berlin and fled, together with his brother Heinz London, to Oxford, England. He then moved to France, and emigrated to the USA in 1939. He became a US citizen in 1945. He was married to the artist Edith London. Fritz London's work included the London dispersion force (1930), superconductivity (1935, with Heinz), and linking Bose-Einstein statistics and superfluidity (1938). He was a professor at Duke University, North Carolina, USA, from 1949.
