The physicist Ferenc Krausz, who teaches in Garching, received his award together with the other winners of the scientific Nobel Prizes in Stockholm on Sunday. Sweden's King Carl XVI Gustaf presented the Nobel Prize in Physics to Krausz, Anne L'Huillier and Pierre Agostini.

Stockholm - Krausz, who was born in Hungary and works at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, has found a way with L'Huillier and Agostini to generate extremely short light pulses that can be used to measure even the rapid motion of electrons. French-born L'Huillier is only the fifth woman to be awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics.

The Nobel Prize in Chemistry was awarded to U.S. researchers Moungi Bawendi, Louis Brus and Alexei Ekimov, who were honored for the discovery and development of so-called quantum dots. Quantum dots are used, among other things, in modern QLED televisions.

The Nobel Prize in Medicine was accepted by Katalin Karikó and Drew Weissman, whose work on mRNA technology has enabled the development of coronavirus vaccines, among other things. The Nobel Prize in Economics was awarded to the US economist Claudia Goldin for her research on the role of women in the labour market. The Nobel Prize for Literature went to the Norwegian Jon Fosse.
