Alain Aspect, John F. Clauser, and Anton Zeilinger were honored for discoveries about “the power of quantum mechanics” that are already beginning to be put to practical use.
scientists Alain Aspect (France), John F. Clauser (USA), Anton Zeilinger (Austria) The 2022 Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded this Tuesday (October 4, 2022).
Experts “The Power of Quantum Mechanics”, The Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm reports that it has paved the way for new technologies based on quantum information.
The judges will ensure that the winner is a pioneer in quantum information science, “We performed a groundbreaking experiment using entangled quantum states.” the mechanism by which two quantum particles are perfectly correlated, regardless of their distance.
The development of experimental tools by the laureates laid the foundation for a “new era of quantum technology”.Ability to manipulate and manage all layers of quantum states and their properties It gives you access to tools with unexpected possibilities. ” the institute said.
Practical Application Leading to Nobel Prize in Physics
“The indescribable effects of quantum mechanics are beginning to find applications. There are now big research areas such as quantum computers, quantum networks and secure quantum cryptographic communications,” said the judges.
three who Share prize money of 10 million Swedish kronor (approximately €900,000) will be presented with the award by King Carl XVI Gustaf at a ceremony in Stockholm on 10 December, the anniversary of the death of scientist Alfred Nobel in 1896.
The announcement of the Nobel Prize in Physics follows the Swedish medical prize awarded on Monday. Svante Pääbo For his work on human evolution.
Chemistry, Literature, Peace and Economics will be published in the next few days.
