CHAMPAIGN, IL -- John Bardeen, who won a Nobel Prize for his work on the transistor, will be memorialized on a U.S. stamp.

In 1947, Bardeen, with fellow Bell Labs' scientists Walter Brattain and William Shockley, invented the first working transistor. Eight years later, the trio won the Nobel Prize.

In 1951, he joined the University of Illinois faculty. While at Illinois, Bardeen shared in a second Nobel Prize, this one for work on superconductivity.

The stamp will be officially issued this week at the Postage Stamp Mega-Event in New York.
