John Bardeen ( / bɑːrˈdiːn /; May 23, 1908 – January 30, 1991)  was an American physicist and electrical engineer.
John Bardeen, (born May 23, 1908, Madison, Wis., U.S.—died Jan. 30, 1991, Boston, Mass.), American physicist who was cowinner of the Nobel Prize for Physics in both 1956 and 1972. He shared the 1956 prize with William B. Shockley and Walter H. Brattain for their joint invention of the transistor .
Bardeen was elected to the National Academy of Sciences in 1954. Honours include the Stuart Ballentine Medal of the Franklin Institute, Philadelphia (1952) and the John Scott Medal of the City of Philadelphia (1955), both awarded jointly with Dr. W.H. Brattain, the Buckley Prize of the American Physical Society (1955) and D.Sc. (Hon.) from ...
John Bardeen (May 23, 1908–January 30, 1991) was an American physicist. He is best known for winning the Nobel Prize in Physics twice, making him the first person to win two Nobel Prizes in the same field.
John Bardeen was arguably the most influential scientist/inventor of the latter part of the 20th century. Through his scientific discoveries, his instinct for inven-tion, and his impact on colleagues, he made possible the electronics revolution and the information explosion that have dramatically changed our daily lives.

Bardeen, a Fellow of the American Physical Society, served on the Council from 1954-57 and was President in 1968-69. He was elected to the National Academy of Sciences in 1954 and the National Academy of Engineering in 1972.
A Look Back at John Bardeen. Physicist John Bardeen, 1971 IEEE Medal of Honor recipient and the winner of two Nobel Prizes, was born on May 23, 1908, in Madison, Wisconsin. Bardeen helped develop the transistor, which made possible the invention of almost every modern electronic device.
John Bardeen was an American physicist and electrical 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 ...
John Bardeen was one of a handful of individuals awarded the Nobel Prize twice and the first scientist to win dual awards in physics. Both times, he shared the prize with others. The first time his co-recipients were Walter Brattain and William Shockley, who worked with Bardeen on the invention of the transistor.
