85574 - Transcription: Podcast With US #131: Nobel Prize in Physics 2023

Ν. Λυγερός

This podcast is dedicated to the Nobel prize in physics. This Nobel, this year, has been awarded to a team of scientists who discover a new technique. Yes, we can say that, using lasers  and it allows us to see the rapid movements of electrons and it’s very impressive, why? Because we can follow them inside the matter. So it’s not just a problem of spacetime and also special relativity. In fact, we have to use those lasers to see inside atoms and molecules. So for the first time, we can say that this team gives Humanity new tools for exploring with a new window, all this world inside the matter with another mentation,
another way to think of things, because we can see, we can follow them and before everybody thought that it was impossible, because it’s a very hard problem, when we are in the matter,  because we have to use  light and light with a very short duration, so we are talking about pulse and at this level is almost unimaginable, because it was too tough for science. But they did it. And now we can say that Pierre Agostini, Ferenc Krausz and Anne L’Huillier  made an achievement in this field, that’s why for us it’s a very important recognition and not just a prize, because for us, and I mean with that Humanity, we can see now a new world.
