Two Americans and a German have won the 2014 Nobel Prize in chemistry for their research on optical microscopy.
Eric Betzig, of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Ashburn, Virginia; Stefan W. Hell, of the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry, and German Cancer Research Center; and William E. Moerner of Stanford University in California are the three winners, the Nobel committee announced.
“Due to their achievements, the optical microscope can now peer into the nanoworld,” the committee said.
