Alain Aspect

Alain Aspect is affiliated professor with distinction at the École normale supérieure Paris-Saclay (ENS Paris-Saclay) and member of the Scientific Council.

A former student of the Ecole (class of 1965), he was a lecturer at ENS Paris-Saclay (then ENSET) when he carried out the experimental tests of Bell's inequalities linked to the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen paradox, in his quantum optics laboratory at the Institut d'Optique.

His work, now awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics, founded the second quantum revolution and inspired a very large community that is now dedicated to the development of quantum technologies. He is recognised for having shed light on the fundamental aspects of the quantum behaviour of single photons, pairs of photons and atoms, and for having contributed to the understanding of the quantum world.

ENS Paris-Saclay, CNRS, Université Paris-Saclay, Institut d'Optique Graduate School and École Polytechnique are delighted with this well-deserved distinction, which rewards years of pioneering research in the key field of physics that is quantum technology.
