The 2022 Physics Nobel Prize

The Nobel Prize in Physics 2022 was awarded “for experiments with entangled photons, establishing the violation of Bell inequalities and pioneering quantum information science” to be shared jointly between Alain Aspect, John F. Clauser, and Anton Zeilinger.

Alain Aspect, John Clauser and Anton Zeilinger have each conducted groundbreaking experiments using entangled quantum states, where two particles behave like a single unit even when they are separated. Their results have cleared the way for new technology based upon quantum information.
