Their work “revolutionized our lives,” said the Nobel committee when it announced the three winners of this year’s Nobel Prize in Chemistry.
Americans John B. Goodenough and M. Stanley Whittingham share the prize with Akira Yoshino from Japan for their work on the development of lithium-ion batteries.
The lightweight and rechargeable batteries power mobile phones and laptop computers. Lithium-ion battery technology has also enabled the development of energy storage for electric cars, solar power and wind power.
First awarded in 1901, the Nobel Prize is awarded annually in six categories and considered the world’s most prestigious award for each field.
