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.

  • 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.
