More Nobel prizes in quantum information?

In summary, quantum information is a field that deals with processing, storing, and transmitting information using the principles of quantum mechanics. It has been recognized by the Nobel committee for its significant contributions to fields such as computing, communication, and cryptography. So far, four Nobel prizes have been awarded for contributions to quantum information. Some potential future Nobel prize-worthy developments include quantum computing, secure communication networks, and quantum sensing. Notable scientists in the field include Peter Shor, Alain Aspect, and Shafi Goldwasser and Silvio Micali. There are various resources available for learning more about quantum information, such as online courses, textbooks, and conferences. Recommended resources for beginners include "Quantum Computing for Computer Scientists" and "Quantum

Alain Aspect, John Clauser & Anton Zeilinger have rightfully received the Nobel prize for their contributions to quantum information, as they were three of the main pioneers of quantum information.

However, is it now impossible or very unlikely that other physicists working on this field (e.g. Charles Bennett or Giles Brassard) receive one as well?

No man (woman) is an island, and there are almost always collaborators who cannot be included. I think information theory will continue to be an important venue.
