Harold Walter Kroto y el descubrimiento de los fullerenos

El premio Nobel en 1985 por su descubrimiento de la molécula del carbono 60 falleció el sábado

EL PAÍS 2 MAY 2016 

El pasado sábado falleció Harold Walter Kroto, uno de esos escasos científicos que marcan una época y cuya aportación a la ciencia queda para siempre grabada en el acervo cultural de la humanidad. En primer lugar, por el enorme alcance del descubrimiento científico de los fullerenos que realizó, en 1985, junto a Robert Curl y el ya fallecido Richard E. Smalley —además de los entonces estudiantes Jim Heath y Sean O’Brien— y que, 11 años después, les valió la concesión del premio Nobel de Química de 1996.

    THE NEW YORK TIMES | By NATALIE ANGIERFEB. 23, 2017 Dr. Dresselhaus used resonant magnetic fields and lasers to map out the electronic energy structure of carbon. She investigated the traits that emerge when carbon is interwoven with other materials: Stitch in some alkali metals, for example, and carbon can become a superconductor, in which an electric current meets virtually no resistance.
