  2. John Bardeen - Wikipedia

    John Bardeen (/ b ɑːr ˈ d iː n /; May 23, 1908 – January 30, 1991) was an American physicist and engineer. He is the only person to be awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics twice: first in 1956 with William Shockley and Walter Brattain for the invention of the transistor ; and again in 1972 with Leon N. Cooper and John Robert Schrieffer for a fundamental theory of conventional superconductivity known as the BCS theory .

  9. John Bardeen: the greatest physicist you (probably) never heard...

    John Bardeen died in 1991. Some of his neighbours never knew he’d invented transistors and explained superconductivity, or that he was the only person in history to win two Nobel Prizes in physics. They remembered him as a modest, unassuming man who liked to grill hamburgers for the neighbourhood and who would always ask his guests if they wanted the bun toasted, which was how he liked it.

  10. The only person to win two Nobel Prizes in physics was John Bardeen, first in 1956 for the transistor, and then in 1972 for his theory of superconductivity. The transistor, developed with Walter Brattain and William Shockley, performed electronic functions similar to the vacuum tube in radio and television, but was smaller and used less energy. The transistor became the basis for all modern electronics and the foundation for the microchip and computer technology.
