OSU Professor Awarded Nobel Prize
Pierre Agostini was one of three scientists recognized
A professor at The Ohio State University was awarded the Nobel Prize in physics for his study of electron dynamics in matter.
Pierre Agostini was one of three scientists recognized for the Nobel Prize on Tuesday for their "experimental methods that generate attosecond pulses of light for the study of electron dynamics in matter."
Agostini shares the award with Ferenc Krausz from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics and Anne L'Huillier from Lund University in Sweden. Their work produced pulses of light so short that they were measured in attoseconds. This demonstrates that these pulses can be used to provide images of processes inside atoms and molecules.
