Since 1965, Serge Haroche has been married to the sociologist Claudine Haroche (née Zeligson) whose parents were married in 1936:
Serge and Claudine had been playmates as kids from the Jewish community of Russian émigrés in Casablanca (so was Serge's younger brother Joël). They drifted apart for 15 years before meeting again in Paris, by chance, in the Spring of 1964. They have two grown children:
Early Life :
Like many French-educated Jewish families from Morocco, the parents of Serge Haroche relocated to France in 1956, at the end of the French protectorate in Morocco. Three of their sons (Serge, Joël, Gilles) were born in Morocco. The fourth one (Michel) was born in Paris, in 1959.
Serge Haroche received his secondary education at the Lycée Carnot (Baccalauréat in 1961). Then he spent two years of classes préparatoires (Maths Sup, Maths Spé) at the prestigious Lycée Louis-le-Grand. In the Summer of 1963, Serge Haroche ranked first in the Polytechnique entrance contest and third for ENS, which he chose to enter. From 1963 to 1967, Haroche was an ENS student in Paris, attending lectures by the likes of Alfred Kastler (1902-1984; Nobel 1966) and Claude Cohen-Tanoudji (b. 1933; Nobel 1997), his future doctoral adviser.
He graduated in 1967 with an Agrégation and Doctorat de troisième cycle.
From 1974 to 1984, Haroche taught Quantum Mechanics at Polytechnique (where, incidentally, the author was a student of his, in the Fall of 1977).
Serge Haroche was full professor at Paris VI (UPMC) from 1975 to 2001 and head of the Physics department at the Ecole Normale Supérieure from 1994 to 2000.
He held the chair of Quantum Mechanics at the Collège de France from 2001 to 2015. Shortly before receiving the Nobel Prize in 2012, he was elected Administrator of the Collège de France, for a 3-year term.
In 2013, Serge Haroche became a Commander in the French Legion of Honor. He was nominated Grand Officer on 14 july 2017 (to take effect at a ceremony to be scheduled by himself, within two years).
Haroche is a member of the French Académie des sciences and a Foreign Member of the US National Academy of Sciences.
