Today, quantum dots, which are tiny nanoparticles whose size determines their properties, illuminate computer monitors and TV screens when these are based on QLED technology. In the field of medicine, quantum dots are currently used to map biological tissues
The 2023 Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to three researchers: Pierre Agostini, Ferenc Krausz and Anne L'Huillier for "the development of their methods that produce extremely short attosecond pulses of light For the study of the dynamics of electrons inside the material"
Kariko and Weissman immediately realized that their discovery was of enormous significance for the possible use of messenger RNA in medicine. These important findings were published in 2005, 15 years before the outbreak of the Corona epidemic.
The two, Katalin Kariko and Drew Weissman, were informed about a month ago that they had won the HARVEI Award at the Technion
