Successful Nobel Prize Colloquium
The 2014 Nobel Prize in physics was awarded to three Japanese scientists for their development of blue light-emitting diodes (LED), an energy-efficient source of white-light. Prof. Dr. Henning Riechert, President of the Paul Drude Institute for solid-state physics in Berlin, was the scientist to develop the first LED in Europe (1996, Siemens AG). He held an exciting presentation on the current research situation and the large saving potential of LED- Technology.
The 2014 Nobel Prize for chemistry went to two US and one German researcher for their development of super-resolution fluorescence microscopy. Lecturer on this topic was Univ.-Prof. Dr. Thomas Klar from the Institute of Physics at Johannes Kepler Universität Linz. He was involved in Stefan W. Hell’s work, the scientist who won the prize.
