"for the theoretical discovery of a mechanism that contributes to our understanding of the origin of mass of subatomic particles, and which recently was confirmed through the discovery of the predicted fundamental particle, by the ATLAS and CMS experiments at CERN's Large Hadron Collider"
"for the discovery of the mechanism of spontaneous broken symmetry in subatomic physics"
"for his theoretical studies of the physical processes of importance to the structure and evolution of the stars"
"for his theoretical and experimental studies of the nuclear reactions of importance in the formation of the chemical elements in the universe"
"for his theoretical predictions of the properties of a supercurrent through a tunnel barrier, in particular those phenomena which are generally known as the Josephson effects"
"for fundamental work and discoveries in magnetohydro-dynamics with fruitful applications in different parts of plasma physics"
"for fundamental work and discoveries concerning antiferromagnetism and ferrimagnetism which have led to important applications in solid state physics"
"for his contributions to the theory of the atomic nucleus and the elementary particles, particularly through the discovery and application of fundamental symmetry principles"
"for his pioneering studies of electron scattering in atomic nuclei and for his thereby achieved discoveries concerning the structure of the nucleons"
"for his researches concerning the resonance absorption of gamma radiation and his discovery in this connection of the effect which bears his name"
"in recognition of the extraordinary services he has rendered by his discovery of spontaneous radioactivity"
