  Bednorz, Johannes Georg - MSN Encarta
Bednorz and his colleague, Swiss physicist Karl Alex Müller, discovered that copper oxide ceramic materials can achieve superconductivity (the ability of a material to carry an electrical current indefinitely without resistance) at temperatures well above the extremely low temperatures once associated with this remarkable property.
Bednorz was educated at the University of Münster and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, where he received his Ph.D. degree in 1982 under the guidance of Müller.
Shortly after he completed his doctoral work, Bednorz joined Müller in an investigation of superconducting materials that were discovered in 1911 by Dutch physicist Heike Kamerlingh Onnes, winner of the 1913 Nobel Prize in physics.

 Mag Lab Education - Pioneers in Electricity and Magnetism: Georg Bednorz
Born in Germany as Johannes Georg Bednorz on May 16, 1950, Bednorz was one of several children of Anton and Elisabeth Bednorz.
Bednorz chiefly functioned in an experimental capacity, preparing and testing the oxides, which he fired as ceramics because the process was less complicated and time-consuming than growing them as crystals.
Bednorz and Müller published their findings in April 1986 in the German journal Zeitschrift für Physik, although they had some misgivings about doing so because they had not yet tested their record-breaking copper oxide for the Meissner effect, a determining factor in whether or not a material is a true superconductor.

In full JOHANNES GEORG BEDNORZ German physicist who, along with Karl Alex Müller, was awarded the 1987 Nobel Prize for Physics for their joint discovery of superconductivity in certain substances at temperatures higher than had previously been thought attainable.
Bednorz graduated from the University of Münster in 1976 and earned his doctorate at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology at Zürich in 1982.
The intense research generated by Müller's and Bednorz's discovery raised the prospect that superconductivity could be achieved at temperatures high enough for the generation and transmission of electric power, a feat that would have important economic implications.

 Johannes Georg Bednorz - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Johannes Georg Bednorz (May 16, 1950 in Neuenkirchen, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany) is a German physicist who shared the 1987 Nobel Prize in Physics for work in high-temperature superconductivity.
In 1982, Bednorz was hired by IBM to work in their Zurich laboratories.
In 1983, Bednorz and Müller began a systematic study of the electrical properties of ceramics formed from transition metal oxides, and in 1986, they succeeded in inducing superconductivity in a barium lanthanum copper oxide (BaLaCuO, also known as LBCO); the oxide's critical temperature was 35 K, a full 12 kelvins higher than the previous record.
