    Particle control in a quantum world - 2012 Nobel prize in physics

    Prof. Martin Čopič, Fakulteta za matematiko in fiziko, Univerza v Ljubljani

The Nobel prize in physics for 2012 was awarded to Serge Haroche and David J Wineland  "for ground-breaking experimental methods that enable measuring and manipulation of individual quantum systems". Serge Haroche is the pioneer in experiments with single photons in a resonator cavity and their interactions with atoms, while David Wineland experiments with single ions in an ion trap and manipulates them with light. These experiments are important as tests of basic quantum mechanics and the transition from the microscopic to macroscopic world, and for development of new generation of precise atomic clocks and quantum computing.
