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."                     

 [Above information from: <>, viewed November 2014]

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.


Scope of this Guide

This guide is meant for those who are pursuing graduate and post-grad work in physics at UNH, and for those who are strongly interested in physics.  It will get you started with resources for doing literature searches,finding library materials (and staff who can help!), getting help with writing, and professional directions in physics.


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.  For VPN access to library resources, you need an easy extra step to install it with the all_traffic configuration.  

Without VPN, you may still access library resources from off-campus.  To do this, you must find the resource in the UNH Library Catalog, UNH Library Database List and/or UNH Fulltext Journal List.  When you go to the record for the resource and click on the UNH Library link for it, you will be prompted to put in your IT ID.  You should then be connected to that resource.
