Quote of the Day: Serge Haroche Wins Nobel Prize in Physics

Serge Haroche about the moment he found out he had won:

“I was lucky – I was in the street and passing a bench so I was able to sit down immediately. I was walking with my wife going back home and when I saw the area code 46, then I sat down. [When I saw] the Swedish code I realised it was real. It’s fairly overwhelming.”

Serge Haroche has been professor of quantum physics at the Collège de France since 2001. He has won the Nobel prize for physics “for ground-breaking experimental methods that enable measuring and manipulation of individual quantum systems.”
