Physik-Nobelpreis 2017: Rainer Weiss, Barry C. Barish, Kip S. Thorne
"for decisive contributions to the LIGO detector and the observation of gravitational waves."
Physik-Nobelpreis 2016: David J. Thouless, F. Duncan M. Haldane, J. Michael Kosterlitz
"for theoretical discoveries of topological phase transitions and topological phases of matter".
Physik-Nobelpreis 2015: Takaaki Kajita, Arthur B. McDonald
