Nobel Prize winners will be announced on Tuesday morning. This will end as hidden from the prying eyes of the Swedish Academy meetings and public speculation, at least until next year.
On the eve of the announcement of winners award ceremony recognized by most as the highest achievement in the field of Physics, American Institute of Physics conducted a poll last week, to find out who in the opinion of physicists, will be the winner in this category.
An anonymous survey was conducted on several websites frequented by physicists. Respondents were asked to choose who they think will be the winner of the Nobel Prize in physics this year.
Although the survey results may not necessarily be 100% true, yet they are curious enough. Of the 320 votes cast, most give preference experimental, rather than theoretical work.
