IEEE Congratulates Nobel Prize Winners: Open Access Articles Available

20th October 2023

IEEE congratulates Ferenc Krausz, Pierre Agostini, and Anne L’Huillier on winning the 2023 Nobel Prize for Physics. The prize was awarded jointly to the three scientists “for experimental methods that generate attosecond pulses of light for the study of electron dynamics in matter.”

According to the announcement from the Nobel Foundation, the laureates’ contributions have “enabled the investigation of processes that are so rapid they were previously impossible to follow.” It further explains that there are“potential applications in many different areas. In electronics, for example, it is important to understand and control how electrons behave in a material. Attosecond pulses can also be used to identify different molecules, such as in medical diagnostics.”
