Kohn, Walter (1923-) is an Austrian-born American physicist most noted for his investigations into the electronic structure of solid-state matter. His contributions have led to major advancements in the areas of superconductivity, semiconductors, and surface physics. Kohn shared the 1998 Nobel Prize in chemistry with the British chemist John Anthony Pople for their studies of the properties of molecules and the chemical processes involving molecules.
