Unfortunately, the Nobel Foundation never got to honour this Scientist !! In my personal opinion, it is one of the greatest blunders of the Nobel Committee, not considering his work to be an application of Physics and honouring him for that. It is my sincere wish that the Nobel Committee honour Claude with the Nobel Prize, posthumously even now, as otherwise, it would be one of the greatest blunders in modern history ever !
