Today, Dr. Douglas Osheroff spoke at our main office to inaugurate BloomBoard's Guest Speaker Series. Dr. Osheroff is currently Professor Emeritus at Stanford University in the physics department. He is a physicist known for his work in experimental condensed matter physics and for his co-discovery of superfluidity in Helium-3. He shared the 1996 Nobel Prize in Physics along with David Lee and Robert C. Richardson.
Dr. Osheroff advanced the fundamentals of how fluids and solids behave at low temperatures, using experimental techniques such as magnetic or thermal measurements. Read more about his Nobel Prize work. Our team learned about his life's work, research philosophy, family, and his love for photography.
