Speaker’s profile

 Prof. Osheroff discovered transitions to the “superfluid” phases, in which matters flow without friction, in Liquid Helium-3, an isotope of ordinary Helium-4, at ultralow temperatures near three thousandths of Kelvin in 1971, when he was a Ph.D. student. He also performed many unique and outstanding experiments on this subject subsequently. For elucidation of the curious nature of this superfluid, Prof. Osheroff was awarded Nobel Prize in Physics in 1996.
