    Obviously I was wrong. Never mind.
    All my pop culture references are aging, alas.

    I've never see "The Big Bang".

    No, they didn't build that. Someone else did that.

    So that means the American won it. Let's be honest, the Frenchman will just surrender it to us.

    No, this is more AMO physics and less HEP.

    I suppose later on today, there'll be an article that goes into what it is these guys have done.

    Meanwhile, the crib notes, please?

    Essentially, these were measurements of quantum systems which did not collapse the envelope. When taking measurements of quantum systems, the measurement itself typically changes the system; nominally referred to as collapsing the wavefunction. The two men whom earned the Nobel Prize had developed techniques to probe the quantum state of a system without collapsing the wavefunction. One did it through control of ions and scattering light, the other by control of photons.

    I haven't read any of their papers, but I'm thinking that I should. It seems rather interesting.
