President NAKAMURA made a courtesy visit to Dr. Serge Haroche

Dr. NAKAMURA (JST President) and Mr. OKIMURA (Adviser) visited the Collège de France on April 26th to meet with Dr. Serge Haroche (Nobel Laureate in Physics 2012).

Dr. Haroche was French side research director on the project of “Quantum Entanglement” from 1999 to 2004. It is one of projects that are conducted by between Japan and France under the International Cooperative Program called “ICORP”, and the Japanese side research director was Dr. Yoshihisa YAMAMOTO.

He also participated in “SORST” project, JST’s basic research programs during 2004 and 2009, and studied physical understanding of quantum fluctuations. Recently, he has been studied for the realization of "quantum simulation" to analyze the characteristics of the material on the basis of the quantum mechanics.

JST, an integrated organization of science and technology in Japan, establishes an infrastructure for the entire process from the creation of knowledge to the return to the society. For more information, visit http://www.jst.go.jp/EN/
