Caption

Karl Alexander Muller (born 1927), Swiss physicist. Muller studied at the ETH Zurich, in Switzerland, with most of his career being spent at the IBM research laboratories in Zurich (from 1963). His major work on superconductivity was carried out here from 1982, together with Johannes Georg Bednorz (born 1950). Between 1983 and 1986, Muller and Bednorz discovered that certain ceramics became superconductors above 30 Kelvin, what had been considered the theoretical limit for high-temperature superconductivity. This work led to them sharing the 1987 Nobel Prize in Physics. Photographed in 1988.
