Nobel Prizes

 

 

 

Nobel Prize winners include people who contributed to the development of the powerful crystallographic methods in use today and those who used crystallographic techniques to reveal important new insights.  The International Union of Crystallography lists 49 people who have won the Nobel Prize for scientific work related to crystallography.
