Born Jan. 4, 1940, in Wales. British physicist. Fellow of the Royal Society of London (1970).

Josephson graduated from Cambridge University in 1960 and received a Ph.D. from the university in 1964. He joined the university’s staff in 1967 and became a professor in 1974. Josephson’s principal works deal with theoretical physics. In 1962 he predicted the existence of a tunnel effect in superconductors separated by a thin dielectric layer (the Josephson effect).

Josephson received a Nobel Prize in 1973.
