Caption: Ivar Giaever (born 1929, left), Norwegian-Canadian physicist, and John Bardeen (1908-1991, right), US physicist. Giaever's work in solid-state physics from 1958 to 1969 earned him a share of the 1973 Nobel Prize in Physics. In 1969, he focused on the study of biophysics, using theories in solid-state physics to explain the behaviour of protein molecules on solid surfaces. John Bardeen shared the 1956 Nobel Prize in Physics for inventing the point-contact transistor in 1947. Bardeen also won the 1972 Nobel Prize in Physics for his work on superconductivity, becoming the only man to receive the award twice.
