By Douglas Martin/The New York Times
Willard S. Boyle, who won the 2009 Nobel Prize in Physics for helping to develop a device that is at the heart of virtually every camcorder, digital camera and telescope in use, died on Saturday in Truro, Nova Scotia. He was 86. (In the photo, Boyle, left, is with George E. Smith in 1974. Their work on the
