Caption: Albert Warner Overhauser (1925-2011), US physicist. Overhauser studied at the University of California, Berkeley, from 1942, spending two years in the US Navy Reserve (uniform pictured) in the Second World War. He obtained his doctorate in physics in 1951. He is best known for the theory of spin polarization transfer that he developed in the 1950s. Known as the nuclear Overhauser effect, this is observed in nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). Overhauser later worked at Cornell, the Ford Motor Company, and Purdue University. His honours included election to the National Academy of Sciences (1976) and the National Medal of Science (1994).
