In 1915, William Lawrence Bragg at the age of 25 years old and his father William Henry Bragg win Nobel Prize in Physics was jointly awarded the Nobel Prize in Physic “for their services in the analysis of crystal structure by means of X-rays”. The mineral Braggite is named after him and his father.
In 1932, Werner Heisenberg at the age of 31 years old win Nobel Prize in Physics “for the creation of quantum mechanics”. He also made important contributions to the theories of the hydrodynamics of turbulent flows. Although Heisenberg is credited with winning the physics award in 1932, he did not actually receive it until 1933.
In 1933, Paul A.M. Dirac at the age of 31 years old win Nobel Prize in Physics “for the discovery of new productive forms of atomic theory.” jointly with Erwin Schrödinger. He also did work that forms the basis of modern attempts to reconcile general relativity with quantum mechanics.
In 1936, Carl David Anderson at the age of 31 years old win Nobel Prize in Physics. Anderson first detected the particles in cosmic rays. He then produced more conclusive proof by shooting gamma rays produced by the natural radioactive nuclide ThC” (208Tl) into other materials, resulting in the creation of positron-electron pairs. For this work, Anderson shared the 1936 Nobel Prize in Physics with Victor Hess.
In 1957 Tsung-Dao Lee at the age of 31 years old jointly with Chen Ning Yang win Nobel Prize in Physics, for their work on the violation of parity law in weak interaction, which Chien-Shiung Wu experimentally verified.
In 1961 Rudolf Mussbauer at age of 32 years old jointly with Robert Hofstadter win Nobel Prize in Physics “for his researches concerning the resonance absorption of gamma radiation and his discovery in this connection of the effect which bears his name.”
In 1923 Frederick Grant Banting at the age of 32 years old Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for the discovery of insulin jointly with James Rickard Macleode.
In 1976 Maired Corrigan, founder of the Northern Ireland Peace Movement (later to be known as the Community of Peace People), at the age of 32 win the Nobel Peace Prize jointly with Betty Williams.
