  John Bardeen - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
John Bardeen was born in Madison, Wisconsin to Charles and Althea Bardeen.
Bardeen's first PhD student was Nick Holonyak (1954), the inventor of the first visible laser and light-emitting diode, in 1962.
Bardeen received the IEEE Medal of Honor in 1971 for "his profound contributions to the understanding of the conductivity of solids, to the invention of the transistor, and to the microscopic theory of superconductivity."

 John Robert Schrieffer - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
John Robert Schrieffer (born May 31, 1931) is an American physicist and winner, with John Bardeen and Leon Neil Cooper, of the 1972 Nobel Prize for Physics for developing the BCS theory (for their initials), the first successful microscopic theory of superconductivity.
Schrieffer and Bardeen’s collaborator Cooper had discovered that electrons in a superconductor are grouped in pairs, now called Cooper pairs, and that the motions of all Cooper pairs within a single superconductor are correlated and function as a single entity.
In 1980, Schrieffer became a professor at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and rose to chancellor professor in 1984, serving as director of the university’s Institute for Theoretical Physics.

      Physicists John Bardeen, William B. Shockley, and Walter Brattain shared the 1956 Nobel Prize for jointly inventing the transistor, a solid-state device that could amplify electrical current.
The transistor performed electronic functions similar to the vacuum tube in radio and television, but was far smaller and used much less energy.
Bardeen is also responsible for a theory of superconductivity, the property of some metals to lose all electrical resistance at very low temperatures, and for a theory explaining certain properties of semiconductors.
