At a press conference held at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, it was announced that the Nobel Prize in Chemistry was awarded to Moungi Bawendi, Louis Brus, and Alexei Ekimov who created quantum dots in their independent studies, and Bawendi, who radically changed the production of the chemical in question.
It was noted that quantum dots have developed LED light lamps and are used in the illumination of computer and television screens with QLED technology, and in mapping biological tissues in biochemistry and medicine.
On the other hand, the 2023 Nobel Prizes continue to reach their winners. The 2023 Nobel Prize in Medicinewas awarded to Hungarian-born Katalin Kariko and Drew Weissman from the United States (US). Weissman and Kariko were awarded for their mRNA vaccine studies.
