Two American Scientists and one German Scientist have won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for the year 2014. The winners are Eric Betzig, Stefan W. Hell and William E. Moerner, the Nobel committee in Sweden announced today. They won this award for smashing the size barrier in optical microscopes, allowing researchers to see individual molecules inside living cells.

Eric Betzig is working at the Howard Hughes Medfical Institute in Ashburn, Virginia. Hell is director at the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry in Goettingen, Germany and E. Moerner is a professor at Stanford University in California. "Due to their achievements the optical microscope can now peer into the nanoworld," the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences said in awarding the 8 million crown ($1.1 million) prize.

Last year’s Noble Chemistry award went to a group of three scientists of United States  Martin Karplus , Michael Levitt  and Arieh Warshel for devising computer simulations that are used to understand and predict chemical processes (Check details here). Chemistry was the third of this year's Nobel prizes. The Nobel prizes in Medicine and Physics 2014 were already announced. The Nobel Prizes 2014 for literature and economic sciences will be announced later this week, as will the Nobel Peace Prize.
