Louis de Broglie’s seminal paper on wave-particle duality was published in the « Comptes Rendus de l’Académie des sciences » just one hundred years ago.

After those of Alfred Kastler, Claude Cohen-Tannoudji and Serge Haroche, the 2022 Nobel Prize in Physics awarded to Alain Aspect, John Clauser and Anton Zeilinger offers the opportunity to look back on this century of developments in quantum mechanics.

This theory, which accounts for the microscopic world incredibly well, also has subtleties that defy our physical intuition, such as the non-locality of entangled states.

This conference-debate will take us from Louis de Broglie’s stroke of genius to Bell’s inequalities and their experimental tests.

Finally, the massive entanglement between individual quantum systems is a resource that opens up fascinating perspectives for quantum information and computation.
