Over the last few years, the Nobel Prize in Physics has been all over the map. 2006 saw a pair of observational cosmologists honored, while 2007 went to the people who discovered giant magnetoresistance, a phenomenon that is currently key to keeping hard drive capacities growing. Perhaps worried that they were getting too practical, the 2008 Prize was awarded to theoreticians who delved into symmetry breaking, a phenomenon that helps explain why our universe has more matter than antimatter. This year's prize is a complete reversal, honoring scientists that took theoretical ideas that had been kicking around for decades and brought them to the brink of commercialization in the form of CCD imaging and fiber optic communications.




Half the Prize is going to Charles K. Kao, who works at the UK's Standard Telecommunication Laboratories, for his key contribution to the development of fiber optics. The basic concept behind fiber optics is simple: light traveling down a medium can be propagated indefinitely if it's surrounded by a material that has a slightly higher refractive index, allowing it to be reflected internally. The material that describes the award notes that scientists were demonstrating that light could be guided down water jets back in the 1850s, and glass-based devices were on the market roughly a century later.
