Recent Nobel Prize winners
The Nobel Prize in Physics 2014 was awarded jointly to Isamu Akasaki, Hiroshi Amano and Shuji Nakamura "for the invention of efficient blue light-emitting diodes which has enabled bright and energy-saving white light sources."
The 2013 Nobel Prize in Physics has been awarded to Peter W. Higgs (University of Edingburgh) and Francois Englert (Université Libre de Bruxelles)
"for the theoretical discovery of a mechanism that contributes to our understanding of the origin of mass of subatomic particles, and which recently was confirmed through the discovery of the predicted fundamental particle, by the ATLAS and CMS experiments at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider."

To help build public understanding of the context of these groundbreaking discoveries, the American Institute of Physics (AIP) has compiled a Physics Nobel Prize Resources page featuring relevant scientific papers and articles, quotes from experts, multimedia, and other resources.
Instructions for Off-Campus Access
VPN (UNH Connect VPN) provides excellent access; it makes any link to a resources provided by the UNH Library accessible through your computer. If you do not use VPN, you may still access resources from off-campus. To do this, you must get to the resource via the UNH Library Catalog, UNH Library Database List and/or UNH Fulltext Journal List. When you click on the UNH Library link to an online resource, you will be prompted to put in your IT ID. After doing so, you will be connected to that resource.
