List of Nobel Prize Winners in Physics – 1901 to 2021 – PDF Download

Nobel Prize Winners in Physics – The Nobel Prize in Physics is one of the most prestigious awards in the world. It is awarded to individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to physics, either in the form of a single discovery or a series of discoveries.

The award is named after Alfred Nobel, the inventor of dynamite. Nobel originally built an armaments factory when he discovered how profitable it was to keep wars going, but later in his life, he became concerned about the devastating impact of war and decided to use his money to award those who had made extraordinary contributions to human advancement.
