The Hungarian-born physicist Ferenc Krausz was announced the joint winner, together with his French colleagues Pierre Agostini and Anne L'Huillier, of the 2023 Nobel Prize in Physics on Tuesday, news agency MTI reports.
The three physicists were recognized "for experimental methods that generate attosecond pulses of light for the study of electron dynamics in matter," the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences said. Their experiments "have given humanity new tools for exploring the world of electrons inside atoms and molecules", it added.
Dr Krausz is a director at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics in Garching, and a professor at the Ludwig Maximilian University in Munich, Germany.
