The Royal Academy of Sciences of Sweden has announced that the Nobel Prize in Physics for 2023 will be jointly awarded to 3 scientists.
Scientists from America, Germany and Sweden were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics for their research on the electrons of the atom.
Perry Gostini of Ohio State University, USA, Frank Kruse of Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, Germany and NL Hollier of Lund University, Sweden were awarded this honor.
The Royal Academy of Sciences reported that the three scientists developed tools that were used to study the movement of electrons or the process of energy conversion.
According to the statement, the research work of these three made it possible for humans to know about electrons inside atoms and molecules.
The movement of electrons inside atoms and molecules is so fast that the term attoseconds is used.
An attosecond is also one billionth of a billionth of a second.
The prize money awarded with the Nobel Prize will be divided among the three scientists.
Earlier on October 2, the Nobel Committee announced the awarding of the Nobel Prize in Medicine to 2 scientists who helped develop an mRNA vaccine to fight the Covid-19 pandemic.
Keep in mind that the Nobel Prize for Chemistry will be announced on October 4 and the Nobel Prize for Literature on October 5.
The Nobel Peace Prize will be announced on October 6, while the Nobel Prize for Economy will be awarded on October 9.
