Alain Aspect, John Clauser and Anton Zeilinger have proved the capability to study and control particles that are in entangled states through ground-breaking studies. Even if two particles in an entangled pair are physically too far away to interact, what happens to one affects the other. The basis for a new age of quantum technology has been set by the laureates' creation of experimental tools.
