Seventy-four-year-old John Schrieffer was sentenced in Santa Maria, California for a 2004 car crash that killed a man and injured seven people.
Authorities say Schrieffer was driving more than 100 miles per hour when he crashed his Mercedes-Benz into a Toyota van.
Schrieffer shared the 1972 Nobel Prize for physics with two other men for their work that led to the BCS theory of superconductivity.
