He captured a photon and let it fly around in a box into which he sent some atoms, then he asked the atoms what could they tell him about the photon – Serge Haroche, laureate of the 2012 Nobel prize in physics. He invented new methods that enable the measurement and manipulation of individual quantum systems, what is their potential use? Perhaps faster computers and better lasers but for now this is fundamental research. He is the third in a succession of Nobel laureates, his two teachers had received the prize before him.
