Q:Who do you think will win the 2014 Physics Nobel Prize?
Hi! My bet is that IF the Planck Mission (or other people) validate the detection of B-Modes (ie primordial gravitational waves) and so Inflation is confirmed, Alan Guth and Andrei Linde (and probably someone from the experimentalists team of BICEP2) will be strong candidates for the Nobel Prize in Physics this year. We’ll see.
I mean the word proof not in the sense of the lawyers, who set two half proofs equal to a whole one, but in the sense of a mathematician, where half proof = 0, and it is demanded for proof that every doubt becomes impossible.
Beautiful graphs based on co-citation data through scientific journals, for articles published between 1997 and 2006. They are made with VOSviewer, a software developed to create and explore maps based on network data. Among other things you can make cluster, scatter and density analysis… long as you have Java running on your computer. The above examples come from Journal map, but have some other data sets here.
This simulation of a one-nanometer wide Indium Nitride wire shows the distribution of an electron around a positively charged ‘hole.’ Strong quantum confinement in these small nanostructures enables efficient light emission at visible wavelengths.
