IThe recent Nobel prize for superfluid He-3 includes Osheroff, who
apparently was a grad student on the project. This seems pretty rare - =
fnotice that the grad students on the C-60 prize only get a mention, for
instance. Does anyone know more about this? Are there other examples o=
.....maybe Louis deBroglie.Nobel prizes for graduate student work? Why was Osheroff chosen=20
(obviously, he was not just 'in the right place at the right time'!)?
Lots of examples. Half the double pulsar prize went to a grad student,
and all of the prizes to Brian Josephson and Rudolph M=F6ssbauer did. Of
course they were not grad students when the prizes were awarded, but
the work cited was done while they were grad students. These are just
the ones that come off the top of my head; I'm sure there must be others,
and some in other firelds, too.
