96-Year-Old Jewish American Wins Nobel Prize In Physics


Three researchers, including a Jewish American, won the 2018 Nobel Prize in Physics for inventions in the field of laser physics.

Arthur Ashkin, who retired after 40 years from Bell Labs in New Jersey in 1992, but remains active in his home laboratory, at 96 is the oldest ever Nobel laureate.

Ashkin won one half of the $1 million prize, with Gerard Mourou of France and Donna Strickland of Canada sharing the other half for together developing a method to generate ultra-short optical pulses, which also is used in corrective eye surgery.
