Each day, there are many new breakthroughs in the technology field. Recently, the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences has giving the Nobel Prize Award in Physics for 2009 to three physicists for their outstanding groundbreaking in the optical fiber communication and CCD image sensor.

The two honored physicists are Charles K.Kao, Standard Telecommunication Laboratories, Harlow, UK and Chinese University of Hong Kong in the achievement concerning the transmission of light in fibers for optical communication. Willard S. Boyle and George E.Smith from Bell Laboratories, Murray Hill, NJ, USA for the invention of an imaging semiconductor circuit, which is known as the CCD sensor.

CCD image and Optical fiber communication

According to Kao, he made a discovery that led to a new breakthrough in fiber optics since 1966. He was amongst the first few physicists who calculated how to transmit light over long distance via optical glass fibers during 1960s. Now, he had discovered a new technique that is enough to encircle the globe more than 25,000 times with fiber optics!

Furthermore, the discovery of CCD image sensor by S.Boyle and E.Smith also brought the photography into a new revolutionary era, which the CCD provided new possibilities to visualize the previously unseen. [sciencedaily]
