The Nobel Prize in Physics 2012 was awarded jointly to Serge Haroche and David J. Wineland “for ground-breaking experimental methods that enable measuring and manipulation of individual quantum systems” (“The Nobel Prize in Physics 2012”.

The two Scientists from France and the USA, respectively, have reportedly found ways to measure quantum particles without destroying them. Their findings may make it possible to build a new kind of computer more powerful than any seen before — “quantum computers” — that could do more complicated calculations and hold much more data than “classical computers”.
