Congratulations to Serge Haroche
Congratulations to his team, because it is a team effort
Reseach isn't done someone alone in a lab, It starts with a research team.
I was never worried about the quality of French research,
and I don't think we should, because of our high quality educational system.
When we talk about Quantic physics,
we don't necessarily think about improving the performance of computers
Yet, it is the case. For example the research of Albert Fert, French 2007 Nobel Prize in physics,
led to breakthroughs in hard drive capacity
So we can be proud of our French School of Physics!
