  • Italian Nobel Prize in Physics Winners

    Italian Nobel Prize Winners

    The Nobel Prize in Physics is awarded by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. This prize is awarded annually in Stockholm, Sweden during a formal ceremony on December 10. Since 1901 there have been six winners of Italian descent of this prestigious award. Each recipient is listed below with the year they won the award and the reason they were chosen. In some instances the award was shared and in those cases the other recipients are listed.

    Guglielmo Marconi 1909 "in recognition of their contributions to the development of wireless telegraphy"
    Marconi shared this award with Karl Ferdinand Braun.

    Enrico Fermi 1938 "for his demonstrations of the existence of new radioactive elements produced by neutron irradiation, and for his related discovery of nuclear reactions brought about by slow neutrons"

    Emilio Gino Segrè 1959 "for their discovery of the antiproton"
    Segrè shared the prize with Owen Chamberlain.

    Carlo Rubbia 1984 "for their decisive contributions to the large project, which led to the discovery of the field particles W and Z, communicators of weak interaction"
    Rubbia shared the prize with Simon van der Meer.

    William D. Phillips 1997 "for development of methods to cool and trap atoms with laser light"
    Phillips shared the prize with Steven Chu and Claude Cohen-Tannoudji.

    Riccardo Giacconi 2002 "for pioneering contributions to astrophysics, which have led to the discovery of cosmic X-ray sources"
    Giacconi received half of the prize while Raymond Davis Jr. & Masatoshi Koshiba each received 1/4 of the prize.
