                           Nobel Prize in Physics
                            The Science of Light
                From Galileo's Telescope to Quantum Physics

Light has fascinated mankind since the dawn of time. Elucidating its properties 
over the centuries has been an adventure intimately linked with the birth and 
development of modern science; it has led, after many surprising twists, to the 
theories of relativity and quantum physics which have profoundly changed our 
view of the world at the microscopic and cosmic scales alike. Placing his own 
career in a rich lineage of scientific discovery, Nobel Prize-winning physicist 
Serge Haroche offers a literally enlightening account of what we know about 
light today, how we learned it, and how that knowledge has led to countless 
inventions that have revolutionized daily life.

From Galileo and Newton to Einstein and Feynman, from early measurements of the 
speed of light to cutting-edge work on quantum entanglement, Haroche takes a 
detailed and personal look at light's role in how we see and understand the 
universe. The Science of Light is at once a colorful history of scientific 
inquiry and a passionate defense of "blue sky research" -- investigations 
conducted not in pursuit of a particular goal, but out of curiosity and faith 
that today's abstract discoveries may well power tomorrow's most incredible 

A uniquely captivating book about the thrill of discovery.

Serge Haroche is professor emeritus at the College de France, a member of the 
Academie des Sciences, a foreign member of the U.S. National Academy of 
Sciences, and winner of the 2012 Nobel Prize in Physics for discovering methods 
of manipulating and measuring individual quantum systems. He has taught at 
Paris VI University, the Ecole Polytechnique, the Ecole Normale Superieure, 
Harvard University, and Yale University.
