The source for this list of Nobel Laureates associated with DOE and predecessor agencies is the U.S. Department of Energy
Office of Science. Guidelines for inclusion are:
  • The laureate’s prize-winning work was conducted while employed at DOE research facilities or directly funded by DOE at a
    university or industry.
  • The research significantly benefited from laureate’s experiments or programs conducted at the laboratories, but may not have
    been directly funded by DOE.
  • Long-standing and significant DOE or national laboratory support, which would include other research leading to
    prize-winning discoveries.
  • Education and training supported by DOE or the national laboratories, including graduate research, postdoctoral research, or
    undergraduate research experiences that influenced the laureate’s scientific growth and direction.
  • Other research collaborations and joint programs. The laureate was involved in significant joint research collaborations, as
    evidenced by joint proposals, jointly published papers, or extended research participation and guest status.
