Graphene Nobel Prize Committee Criticized For Inaccuracies

An anonymous reader writes “A leading researcher in the field of graphene has published a letter to the Nobel committee asking them to address significant problems with the factual accuracy of the supporting documents that laid the case for awarding Andrei Geim and Konstantin Novoselov the 2010 Nobel Prize in Physics. Nature talks with letter author Walt de Heer about his claims that, aside from factual inaccuracies, the document diminishes the role of other groups and ‘reads like a nomination letter.’ At least one change has already been made by the committee.”
