Accolades from the Department on the 2022 Nobel Prize in Physics

The West Virginia University Department of Physics and Astronomy wishes to congratulate the 2022 Nobel laureates in physics, Alain Aspect, John F. Clauser and Anton Zeilinger “for experiments with entangled photons, establishing the violation of Bell inequalities and pioneering quantum information science”.

The laureates share the prize equally and join a long list of distinguished scientists who have worked in the area of quantum optics.
This work has informed work performed by several groups here at WVU including that of Prof. Edward Flagg, who researches quantum information in nanostructured semiconductor materials known as quantum dots. Prof. Flagg also runs the Quantum Computing Club.
The Quantum Computing Club is for those interested in or looking to learn more about the field. Quantum computing revolves around the programming of quantum computers where are highly powerful and able to solve complex problems that regular computers either cannot solve, or would take years to solve.
