ABSTRACT
Josephson, Brian David (1940-) is a Welsh physicist who received the 1973 Nobel Prize in physics for his discovery of the Josephson effect, which describes the unusual behavior that may occur when electrons �tunnel� through a barrier between two superconductors. Josephson shared the Nobel Prize with physicists Leo Esaki and Ivar Giaever, whose earlier discoveries in superconductivity were the basis for Josephson's findings.
