Physicists Win Nobel Prize For Exotic Matter Research. So What's That?
The prize was awarded to the three for their research in exotic states of matter, which other physicists are hopeful could be used in electronics.By Lindsay Gloor | October 4, 2016
Three professors from American universities won the 2016 Nobel Prize in Physics.
David J. Thouless from the University of Washington was awarded half of the prize, and F. Duncan M. Haldane from Princeton University and J. Michael Kosterlitz from Brown University split the other half.
The British-born trio's research, done in the 1970s and '80s, discovered the secrets of exotic matter.
