Pierre Agostini, Ferenc Krausz and Anne L’Huillier share £823,000 prize for work on electron dynamics in matter

Three scientists have been awarded the 2023 Nobel prize in physics for their work on creating extremely short pulses of light that can be harnessed to study processes occurring inside atoms and molecules.

Pierre Agostini, of Ohio State University, Ferenc Krausz, of Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, and Anne L’Huillier, of Lund University, will each receive equal shares of the 11m Swedish kronor (£823,000) prize announced on Tuesday by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences in Stockholm.
