Physics Nobel Prize

IEEE congratulates Alain Aspect, John. F. Clauser, and Anton Zeilinger on winning the 2022 Nobel Prize for Physics. The prize was awarded jointly to the three scientists “for experiments with entangled photons, establishing the violation of Bell inequalities and pioneering quantum information science.”

Each of the award-winning scientists conducted groundbreaking experiments using entangled quantum states, in which two particles behave like a single unit even when they are separated. Their pioneering results have cleared the way for new technology based on quantum information.

The ineffable effects of quantum mechanics are starting to find applications, and there is now a large field of research that includes quantum computers, quantum networks, and secure quantum encrypted communication.

You can review a sampling of the scientists’ published works now available in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. All of these articles are available free to access for a limited time.

There are also numerous articles and research papers related to these topics and technologies in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library, many of which build upon the pioneering work of the Nobel Prize winners. Click on the keywords below to begin a search of IEEE Xplore on any of the following terms:
