In order to celebrate the outstanding achievement of the 2023 Nobel Prize Winners in Physics and Chemistry, the IEEE has pulled together a sample of the laureates’ published works related to these achievements that can be found in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. The articles will be available free to access for a limited period of time.
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.”

IEEE congratulates Moungi G. Bawendi, Louis E. Brus, and Alexei I. Ekimov on winning the 2023 Nobel Prize for Chemistry. The prize was awarded jointly to the three scientists “for the discovery and development of quantum dots, nanoparticles so tiny that their size determines their properties.”
According to the announcement from the Nobel Foundation, the laureates’ contributions have “succeeded in producing particles so small that their properties are determined by quantum phenomena. The particles, which are called quantum dots, are now of great importance in nanotechnology. Quantum dots now illuminate computer monitors and television screens based on QLED technology. They also add nuance to the light of some LED lamps, and biochemists and doctors use them to map biological tissue.” It further explains that “in the future they could contribute to flexible electronics, tiny sensors, thinner solar cells and encrypted quantum communication.”
