By Jordi Bou

October 4, 2022 - Scientists Alain Aspect, John Clauser and Anton Zeilinger won the 2022 Nobel Prize in Physics for their advances in quantum mechanics on the behaviour of subatomic particles, opening the door to work on super computers and encrypted communication.

The awards were given for “experiments with entangled photons, establishing the violation of Bell inequalities and pioneering quantum information science”, the award-giving body said.

This advances open the door to work on super computers and encrypted communication.

They will share prize money of 10 million Swedish krona (£800,000).
