2010 Nobel Prize Physics Articles

This year the Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov, "for groundbreaking experiments regarding the two-dimensional material graphene", a material expected to have a major impact on the development of new computers, electronics, materials and solar cells.

In recognition of the importance of their work we are pleased to make the laureates' key articles published by Elsevier freely available.
