The Nobel Prize in Chemistry was awarded to Maungi Bavandi, Louis Briss and Alexey Akimov. The Nobel Prize in Chemistry is awarded to scientists for their discovery of quantum dots. Nanoparticles and quantum dots are used in TV screens and LED lights. The Nobel Prize in Physics went to Piera Gostini of Ohio State University, Germany, Ferenc Krause of Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich, and NL Hollier of Land University, Sweden. The three experts have been awarded this prize for their research on devices for detecting electrons in atoms and molecules. Apart from the monetary award, these three winners will also be given Nobel Prize Diploma and Gold Medal.
Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences 2023 Nobel Prize Winners
The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences has announced the names of the 2023 Nobel Prize winners in physics. This year’s Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to Pierre Agostini (Ohio University, USA), Ferring Kruse (Max Planck Institute, Germany) and Anne Elhuiler (Lund University, Sweden) for their research on 10-second pulses of light. Attosecond physics is a branch of physics in which scientists observe extremely small particles on extremely small time scales. An atosecond is one billionth of a nanosecond.
Nobel Prize-winning scientists have devised experiments that can produce extremely fast laser oscillations that can be used to help probe the world at extremely small scales and can be used in other scientific fields, including physics. One million US dollars will also be given to the scientists who won the Nobel Prize. Ann Elhuiler, a member of the team, is the fifth woman in history to be awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics. The previous 221 women laureates include Marie Curie in 1903, Maria Juppert Mayer in 1963, Donna Strickland in 2018 and Andrea Ghiz in 2020.
