Nobel Prize in Physics 2022

portrait d'Alain Aspect

After receiving the CNRS Gold Medal in 2005, the Wolf Prize for Physics in 2010, the Balzan Prize for Quantum Information in 2013, the Niels Bohr Gold Medal in 2013, the Albert Einstein Medal in 2013 and the Frederic Ives Medal by the Optics Society (Optica) in 2013, the Nobel Prize was all that was missing to complete the collection of physics prizes for Alain Aspect, researcher and teacher at the Institut d'Optique.


This 4th of October 2022, the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics to Alain Aspect, John F. Clauser and Anton Zeilinger for "experiments with entangled photons, establishing the violation of Bell inequalities and pioneering quantum information science". It is without doubt the highest honour a physicist can receive in his life.


Entanglement: towards the second quantum revolution

Experimental works of Alain Aspect, in the Quantum Gases team of Institut d'Optique Graduate School, focused on Bell inequalities with entangled photons and, more recently, on ultra-cold quantum gases to study fundamental problems of quantum atom optics, many-body physics and out-of-equilibrium dynamics in correlated quantum systems.
