Nobel prize predictions

From the previous post you will see I was on the Nobel Foundation site and I just noticed that the Physics and Chemistry prizes are about to be announced. Then I thought, who would I predict (see below) and then did a web search to see if anyone else was making predictions.

This post on and the associated links is worth looking at.

I think some of those predictions are focused to much on more recent research.

Here are a few names that I was surprised were not mentioned.

Alain Aspect: experimental tests of Bell inequalities

Frank Steglich: discovery of heavy fermion superconductors

Jun Kondo: magnetic impurities in metals
