Caption: John Bardeen (left) and Anthony Leggett (right), US and British physicists. John Bardeen (1908-1991) shared the 1956 Nobel Prize in Physics with colleague Walter Brattain 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. Anthony Leggett (b.1938) worked with Bardeen as a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1944-1965. Later he was awarded the 2003 Nobel Prize in Physics for his pioneering work on superfluidity. Photographed in 1983.
