The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, jointly awarded the 2022 Nobel Prize in Physics to Aline Aspect, John F. To Anton Zeilinger with Closer.
They were awarded the prize on Tuesday for their contributions to experiments with entangled photons. Pioneering quantum information that establishes the Bell inequality.
They “performed ground-breaking experiments using the so-called quantum state, where two separate particles behave as a single entity,” the academy said in a press release.
“In a ground-breaking experiment, Align Aspect, John Clauser and Anton Zeilinger demonstrate the ability to probe and control particles in bound states,” the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences announced in a press release.
The press release states that exploring trapped quantum states is the objective. Aspect, Clauser and Zeilinger stuck around. Through their experiments, they laid the foundation for the current revolution in quantum technology.
Searches based on quantum information have paved the way for new technologies.
Anders Ehrback, chairman of the Nobel Committee for Physics, commented: “We can see that beyond fundamental questions about the interpretation of quantum mechanics, the laureates’ remarkable work with entangled states.”
A release from the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences also states that John Clauser aims to develop John Bell’s ideas. John Bell was a physicist from Northern Ireland and introduced Bell’s theorem. All of his ideas were missing which could be overcome by a setup by align aspect. Anton Zeilinger’s research group provided a long experiment with refined equipment and those results.
The Nobel Prize in Medicine was announced on Monday, a week after the Nobel Prize announcement. The Nobel Prize in Chemistry was awarded on Wednesday.
In 2021, the Nobel Prize for Physics was jointly awarded to ‘Physical Modeling of Earth’s Climate, Quantifying Variability’ and to Giorgio Parisi for ‘Discovering the Interplay of Disturbances and Fluctuations’. Physical systems from atomic to planetary scales.’
