IVA Fellow Anne L'Huillier awarded Nobel Prize
IVA Fellow Anne L'Huillier is awarded this year's Nobel Prize in Physics “for experimental methods that generate attosecond pulses of light for the study of electron dynamics in matter”. Anne L'Huillier, Fellow of the Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences (IVA) since 2012, shares this year's Nobel Prize with Pierre Agostini and Ferenc Krausz.
We congratulate IVA Fellow Anne L'Huillier who shares this year's Nobel Prize in Physics with Pierre Agostini and Ferenc Krausz. Through experiments they have demonstrated a way to create extremely short flashes of light, which can be used to discern the rapid processes in which electrons move or change their energy, says Tuula Teeri, president of IVA.
