The demonstration of this astonishing property has paved the way for new technologies in quantum computing and ultra-secure communications, or ultra-sensitive quantum sensors that allow extremely precise measurements of gravity in space.

All three are rewarded “For his experiments with entangled photons, establishing violations of Bell’s inequalities and opening a pioneering path to quantum computing”According to the Nobel jury.

“Alain Aspect, John Clauser, and Anton Zeilinger have each performed groundbreaking experiments using entangled quantum states, where two particles behave as a single unit even if separated.”He explains.

This chaotic dynamics is predicted by quantum theory. Even Albert Einstein, however, did not believe it: two particles initially joined (like twins) can behave similarly at a distance, keeping the sign of their common past.
