Join us to welcome our renowned session chair and two esteemed recipients of The Nobel Prize in Physics 2022. This can’t-miss session will feature inspirational perspectives from all three luminaries:
- Session chair David B. Haviland, PhD is a member of the Nobel Committee for Physics and will go behind-the-scenes on the nomination process, evaluating candidates and award history.
- John F. Clauser, PhD will then deliver his insightful talk, Proof that Nonlocal Quantum Entanglement is Real.
- Anton Zeilinger, PhD will wrap up the event as he delights attendees with A Voyage through Quantum Wonderland.
The Nobel Prize in Physics 2022 was awarded to both Clauser and Zeilinger for experiments with entangled photons, establishing the violation of Bell inequalities and pioneering quantum information science. These and other experiments paved the way for quantum computers, quantum networks, and quantum encrypted communication.
Please enter through rooms 410 or 411 to access room 420/421.
John F. Clauser
John F. Clauser was awarded the 2022 Nobel Prize in Physics for his work developing John Bell’s ideas, leading to a practical experiment. When he took the measurements, they supported quantum mechanics by clearly violating a Bell inequality. This means that quantum mechanics cannot be replaced by a theory that uses hidden variables.
Anton Zeilinger was awarded the 2022 Nobel Prize in Physics for his experiments with quantum entanglement. Using refined tools and long series of experiments, Zeilinger started to use entangled quantum states. Among other things, his research group has demonstrated a phenomenon called quantum teleportation, in which a state is transferred from one particle to another.
