Osheroff and his colleagues used a Pomeranchuk cell to investigate the behavior of helium-3 at very low temperatures. They observed unexpected effects in their measurements, which they eventually explained as phase transitions to a superfluid phase of helium-3.
Dr. Osheroff received a Ph.D. from Cornell University in 1973. He then worked for 15 years at Bell Labs in Murray Hill, New Jersey. In 1987, he moved to Stanford University, where he is Professor of Physics and Applied Physics and holds the J.G. Jackson and C.J. Wood Professorship in Physics. He also served as department chair from 1993-96. His current research focuses on the behavior of quantum fluids, solids, and gasses at ultra-low temperatures.

Douglas Osheroff
Douglas Osheroff was born and raised in Aberdeen, Washington,.
He did his undergraduate work at Caltech, receiving his B.S. in physics in 1967. His graduate work was done at Cornell University, where his Ph.D. thesis work resulted in the discovery of three superfluid phases of liqud 3He. These phases are neutral analogs to the superconductors, but with greater complexity in their order.
Leaving Cornell in the fall of 1972, he spent the next fifteen years in the physical research division at AT&T Bell Laboratories, the last six as the head of their Low Temperature and Solid State Research Department. Here, in collaboration, he worked on the newly discovered superfluid phases of liquid 3He, the nature of nuclear spin order in solid 3He, and made the first observations of weak localization in thin disordered metallic films. In 1987 he came to Stanford University.
At Stanford, Osheroff is the J.G. Jackson and C.J. Wood Professor of Physics and the Gerhard Casper University Fellow for Undergraduate Education. His research there still focuses on the properties of condensed matter near the absolute zero of temperature. He has also served as chair of the Physics Department at Stanford from 1993-96, and again from 2001-04.
In 2003 he served as a member of the Columbia Accident Investigation Board, which determined the causes of the accident that led to the destruction of Space Shuttle Columbia during re-entry, on Feb. 1, 2003.
Osheroff has received numerous honors for his research. These include the Sir Francis Simon Memorial Award, the Oliver E. Buckley Condensed Matter Physics Prize, the MacArthur Prize Fellowship Award, and the 1996 Nobel Prize for Physics.
In 1991 Stanford University gave him their Walter J. Gores Award for Excellence in Teaching. Osheroff is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and the National Academy of Sciences. Douglas and his wife Phyllis enjoy classical music, hiking and photography. At Stanford University Osheroff shares his interest in photography by teaching a freshman seminar entitled "Technical Aspects of Photography", and often uses his favorite photo images to decorate his lectures.

The founding members of the new group, organized under section 527 of the tax code, include Nobel Prize winners Peter Agre (Chemistry, 2003), Sidney Altman (Chemistry, 1989), Dudley Hershbach (Chemistry, 1986), Douglas Osheroff (Physics, 1996) and Arno Penzias (Physics, 1978), former National Science Foundation director and head of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) Neal Lane, former OSTP head Jack Gibbons and ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) chairman and National Medal of Technology winner Vint Cerf, widely recognized as the principal architect of the Internet.
The first speaking events organized by Scientists and Engineers for Change begin this week with lectures by Osheroff at the University of Oregon tomorrow and lectures by Agre at the University of Wisconsin on Wednesday, at St. Olaf's on Thursday and at the University of Minnesota on Friday.
Osheroff, the G. Jackson and C. J. Wood Professor of Physics at Stanford, was a researcher at Bell Labs for 15 years and won the Nobel in Physics in 1996.His research focuses on superfluid and solid He3, and he has developed a program to study the low temperature properties of amorphous solids.
