Nobel Prize in Chemistry laureate Prof. Dan Shechtman was awarded the coveted prize at a ceremony in Stockholm Saturday evening. The gala ball was preceded by a weekend, in which Shechter delivered lectures and attended symposia and receptions surrounding the main event.

Shechtman was awarded the prize by Dr. Sven Ledin, of the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm. "Your discovery of quasicrystals," Ledin said addressing Shechtman, "has created a new branch of science. This is in itself of great importance. It has also given us a reminder of how little we know and perhaps given us some humility. That is a truly great achievement.
