Nobel Prizes in Physics

Have you been empowered?1

The two core courses for Physics Minors at IITM (Classical and Quantum Physics), in priniciple, should have taught you enough to understand work that has lead to several Nobel Prizes in Physics. I am listing a few of them — the Nobel Prize site offers a wealth of details (see the press release as well as advanced information) on the prizes.


You can also read about the Nobel Prizes given to Lorentz and Stark, Zeeman, and the bigwigs of QM (Bohr, Schrodinger, Heisenberg, Dirac, Born) at the same site. Here is a complete listing of Physics Nobel Laureates. Chemistry Nobel Laureates such as Pauling also have made fundamental contributions to Quantum Chemstry. So it might be worthwhile to peruse through the Chemistry listing as well.
