Boyle was awarded one half of the prize with George Smith for inventing the charge-coupled device (CCD). Boyle and Smith were both working at Bell Laboratories in New Jersey when they made their discovery in 1969 - Boyle was director of device development at the lab and was Smith's boss; Smith was a department head. The other half of the 2009 prize went to Charles Kao for his work on optical fibre.
