Bell Labs Dedicates Nobel Laureate Garden

Bell Labs, the industrial research arm of Alcatel-Lucent, dedicated a Nobel Laureate Garden within its campus in Murray Hill, New Jersey to commemorate the 13 Bell Labs scientists that have shared eight Nobel Prizes in physics and chemistry.

Bell Labs' most recent Nobel Laureate, Eric Betzig, who received his Nobel Prize in 2014 for his transformative work on molecular and biological imaging, spoke at the garden's dedication ceremony. Also present were George Smith (2009 Nobel Prize in Physics); Horst Stormer (1998 Nobel Prize in Physics); Bob Wilson (1978 Nobel Prize in Physics) and Philip Anderson (1977 Nobel Prize in Physics).
