Event Details

What’s the big deal about blue LEDs? Our TVs, smart phones, even the energy-saving white LED lights at home, school and work wouldn’t be possible without the development of efficient blue light-emitting diodes. Combining light from blue, red and green LEDs makes white light. That’s why this year’s Nobel Prize in Physics matters to us all.


On Wednesday, December 10, Nobel Prizes medals will be presented to some of the world's most outstanding contributors in physics, chemistry, medicine, literature, economics and peace. To mark this event, a panel of professors at UBC's Okanagan campus will discuss all six of this year's Nobel Prize-winning contributions to the world: 

  •  Nobel Prize in Physics—Jonathan Holzman, associate professor, electrical engineering, Faculty of Applied Science
  • Nobel Prize in Chemistry—Fred Menard, assistant professor, chemistry, Irving K. Barber School of Arts and Sciences
  • Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine—Gordon Binsted, Dean, Faculty of Health and Social Development, acting viceprincipal, research
  • Nobel Prize in Literature—Marianne Legault, Associate Dean, Faculty of Creative and Critical Studies
  • Nobel Peace Prize—Susan Crichton, director, Faculty of Education
  • Sveriges Riksmbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel—Ross Hickey, associate professor of economics, Irving K. Barber School of Arts and Sciences
