    Default Nobel Prize in physics

    Russian-born scientists Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov shared the Nobel Prize in physics Tuesday for "groundbreaking experiments" with an atom-thin material expected to play a large role in electronics.

    The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences cited Geim and Novoselov, who are both linked to universities in Britain, for experiments with graphene, a flake of carbon that is only one atom thick.

    Experiments with graphene could lead to the development of new material and "the manufacture of innovative electronics," including faster computers, the citation said.

    "Since it is practically transparent and a good conductor, graphene is suitable for producing transparent touch screens, light panels and maybe even solar cells," the academy said.


    Quantcast
    Geim, 51, is a Dutch national while Novoselov, 36, holds British and Russian citizenship. Both are natives of Russia and started their careers in physics there.

    In a live telephone interview with reporters in Stockholm, Geim said he was shocked by the announcement but planned to go back to work as usual on Tuesday. He said he wasn't among the Nobel Prize winners who "stop doing anything for the rest of their life."

    Geim is a physics professor at the University of Manchester.

    Geim last year received the prestigious Korber European Science Award for his discovery of two-dimensional crystals made of carbon atoms, particularly graphene, the university said on its website.

    It said the discovery "has the potential to revolutionize the world of microelectronics."

    The 2010 Nobel Prize announcements started Monday with the medicine award going to British researcher Robert Edwards for work that led to the first test tube baby, an achievement that helped bring 4 million infants into the world and raised challenging new questions about human reproduction.

    The chemistry prize will be announced on Wednesday, followed by literature on Thursday, the peace prize on Friday and economics on Monday Oct. 11.

    The prestigious awards were created by Swedish industrialist Alfred Nobel and first given out in 1901. The prizes are always handed out on Dec. 10, the anniversary of Nobel's death in 1896.

    ....Reminds me of Star Treks "Transparent Aluminum" presented by Mr. Scott!

    Sort of... Except in this case, you can't see the cloak, but you can still see what's underneath.

    That is pretty damn cool, but I'm kind of disappointed that Obama didn't win it.

    I gotta be honest, it kind of sucks hearing that I lost the Nobel Prize this way! But I will take the high road and congratulate my fellow nominees.
    Another kick in the ass is that those guys used to cheat off me during exams....especially Novoselov, that drunken clown. You could smell the vodka as soon as he walked into the classroom. Glad to hear he turned out alright.

    well, gotta go...just heard they need me for a clean-up in aisle 5.

    Shit. I read the title of this thread and I thought for a moment that Seenbad had won the nobel prize.

    Next year.
