List of Noble Physics Prize Winners
List of Noble Physics Prize Winners :- Dating back, the Nobel Prize in Physics has been awarded nearly 109 times to almost 201 Nobel Laureates between 1901 and 2016.
John Bardeen is the only Nobel Laureate who was honoured and awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics twice, in the year 1956 and 1972. Totes to this, means that a umber of individuals have received the Nobel Prize in Physics. However, with today’s addition, it will be 110th time honouring Nobel Laureates.
LIST OF THE NOBLE PHYISCS PRIZE WINNERS
Beginning with this year, 2016
Nobel Prize in Physics, 2016
Yoshinori Ohsumi wins prize for his work on autophagy – how the body detoxify and repair.
The Nobel Prize in Physics, 2015 Takaaki Kajita and Arthur B. McDonald for the discovery of neutrino oscillations, that shows the neutrinos have mass
The Nobel Prize in Physics, 2014 Isamu Akasaki, Hiroshi Amano and Shuji Nakamura for the invention of efficient blue light-emitting diodes which enables bright and energy-saving white light sources
The Nobel Prize in Physics, 2013 François Englert and Peter W. Higgs for the theoretical discovery of a mechanism that contributes to the understanding of the origin of mass of subatomic particles, and this recently has confirmed through the discovery of the predicted fundamental particle, by the ATLAS and CMS experiments at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider
The Nobel Prize in Physics, 2012 Serge Haroche and David J. Wineland for ground-breaking experimental methods that enable measuring and the manipulation of individual quantum systems
The Nobel Prize in Physics, 2011 Saul Perlmutter, Brian P. Schmidt and Adam G. Riess for the discovery of the accelerating expansion of the Universe through observations of distant supernovae
The Nobel Prize in Physics, 2010 Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov for groundbreaking experiments regarding the two-dimensional material graphene
The Nobel Prize in Physics, 2009 Charles Kuen Kao for groundbreaking achievements concerning the transmission of light in fibers for optical communication
Willard S. Boyle and George E. Smith for the invention of an imaging semiconductor circuit i.e. the CCD sensor
The Nobel Prize in Physics, 2008 Yoichiro Nambu for the discovery of the mechanism of spontaneous broken symmetry in subatomic physics
Makoto Kobayashi and Toshihide Maskawa for the discovery of the origin of the broken symmetry which predicts the existence of at least three families of quarks in nature
The Nobel Prize in Physics, 2007 Albert Fert and Peter Grünberg for the discovery of Giant Magnetoresistance
The Nobel Prize in Physics, 2006 John C. Mather and George F. Smoot for their discovery of the blackbody form and anisotropy of the cosmic microwave background radiation
The Nobel Prize in Physics, 2005 Roy J. Glauber for his contribution to the quantum theory of optical coherence
John L. Hall and Theodor W. Hänsch for their contributions to the development of laser-based precision spectroscopy, including the optical frequency comb technique
Wrapping up for this year!
The 2016 Nobel prize in medicine/physiology has gone to Yoshinori Ohsumi for his work on autophagy. The study defines, biological recycling system that breaks down old or dangerous proteins and turns them into fresh building blocks for the cell. The same process keeps invading pathogens at bay and prevents the build-up of clumps of proteins that can further lead to devastating neurodegenerative diseases.
