Caryatids

 The Caryatids (Greece)

Although of the same height and build, and similarly attired and coiffed, the six Caryatids are not the same: their faces, stance, draping, and hair are carved separately; the three on the left stand on their right foot, while the three on the right stand on their left foot. Their bulky, intricately arranged hairstyles serve the crucial purpose of providing static support to their necks, which would otherwise be the thinnest and structurally weakest part.

Nobel Prize in Physics 2016

The laureates this year with the Nobel Prize in Physics are:
A golden medallion with an embossed image of a bearded man facing left in profile. To the left of the man is the text "ALFR•" then "NOBEL", and on the right, the text (smaller) "NAT•" then "MDCCCXXXIII" above, followed by (smaller) "OB•" then "MDCCCXCVI" below.



  • David J. ThoulessUniversity of Washington, Seattle, WA, USA
  • F. Duncan M. HaldanePrinceton University, NJ, USA
  • J. Michael KosterlitzBrown University, Providence, RI, USA


”for theoretical discoveries of topological phase transitions and topological phases of matter”
This year’s Laureates opened the door on an unknown world where matter can assume strange states. They have used advanced mathematical methods to study unusual phases, or states, of matter, such as superconductors, superfluids or thin magnetic films. Thanks to their pioneering work, the hunt is now on for new and exotic phases of matter. Many people are hopeful of future applications in both materials science and electronics.
