Nobel Physics Winner to Discuss Helium Research

The winner of the 1996 Nobel Prize in physics is scheduled to speak today at Cal State Dominguez Hills in Carson.

Douglas Osheroff, a professor at Stanford University, plans to deliver a lecture titled “Superfluidity in Helium-3.”

Osheroff and Cornell colleagues David M. Lee and Robert C. Richardson won the award for discovering a form of helium that can flow uphill. Osheroff will describe the research he began in 1971 that resulted in their Nobel Prize.

Osheroff’s lecture is free and open to the public. The lecture is scheduled to begin at 3:30 p.m. at the Grand Hall in the Loker Student Union.
