Calling Louis Brus: 2023 chemistry laureate

"This is a collaborative effort," says Louis E. Brus when asked for his first reaction to the award of the 2023 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, "partly physics, partly chemistry, partly material science." In this conversation with the Nobel Prize's Adam Smith he pays tribute to the many contributors to the field and discusses his own motivations for exploring the nature of nanoparticles in the productive environment of Bell Labs, 40 years ago. "It's a surprise, at this point, after all these years," he says, "I'm just lucky, I guess, that the Nobel Prize has chosen to honour this particular areas of research at this time."
