Two scientists at the University of Manchester have won the Nobel Prize for physics. The scientists were awarded the prize for their pioneering work on graphene, which they discovered in 2004.
Professor Andrew Geim’s and Professor Konstantin Novoselov’s Nobel Prize means there are currently four Novel Laureates at The University of Manchester. The pair were awarded the highest accolade in the scientific world for their pioneering work on graphene: the world’s thinnest material. Professor Novoselov, 36, is also the youngest Nobel Laureate since 1973.
