The List of All Nobel Laureates in Physics Since 1901

 The Nobel Prize is an annual award acknowledging outstanding contributions to physics, chemistry, physiology or medicine, literature, and peace. It is established in 1895 by the Swedish chemist and inventor of dynamite Alfred Bernhard Nobel.

In his will, Alfred Nobel first mentioned that Physics should be the prize area because physics has been the foremost science for many people. Since 1901, the Nobel Prize in Physics has been awarded 114 times to 216 Nobel Laureates by The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, Stockholm, Sweden.

We have curated all Nobel Laureates from 1901 to 2020 to honor all those beautiful minds.
