An American and a Canadian won the Nobel Prize in Physics for developing a new way to study the building blocks of all matter -- atoms and molecules. The $930,000 physics prize will be shared by Clifford G. Shull of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Bertram N. Brockhouse of McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario. Both developed a way to probe atomic structure by knocking off neutrons from particles of matter.
