TALLAHASSEE: John Robert Schrieffer, a physicist who shared in the 1972 Nobel Prize in physics for developing a pioneering theory of superconductivity, has died at the age of 88.

Schrieffer died in his sleep at a nursing facility Saturday in Tallahassee, Florida, his family members said.

Along with colleagues John Bardeen and Leon Cooper, Schrieffer was awarded the Nobel Prize in physics for developing the BCS theory. It is considered the first successful microscopic theory of superconductivity — the ability of certain materials to conduct electricity with practically zero resistance.
