William Moerner (Stanford), Stefan Hell (Max Planck Institute) and Eric Betzig (Howard Hughes Medical Institute) have won the 2014 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for “for the development of super-resolved fluorescence microscopy”.
Including the three physicists who won the Physics Prize yesterday, that’s six physicists who have become Laureates this year. And (not to rub it in) zero chemists.
Don’t worry chemists, you have a few more chances – provided a chemist picks up the Literature Nobel tomorrow, a Peace Prize Friday, or the Economics Prize on Monday. Good luck!
