Quantum experiments with entangled photons win the 2022 Nobel Prize in physics

Tests of quantum weirdness and its potential real-world applications have been recognized with the 2022 Nobel Prize in physics. 

At some level we are all subject to quantum rules that even Albert Einstein struggled to come to terms with. For the most part, these rules play out behind the scenes in transistors that make up computer chips, lasers and even in the chemistry of atoms and molecules in materials all around us. Applications that stem from this year’s Nobel Prize take advantage of quantum features at larger scales. They include absolutely secure communications and quantum computers that may eventually solve problems that no conceivable conventional computer could complete in
