Peter Zoller awarded John Stewart Bell Prize

Peter Zoller and Ignacio Cirac (Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics, Garching) receive the John Stewart Bell Prize for their outstanding achievements in the field of quantum information processing

The fourth biennial John Stewart Bell Prize for Research on Fundamental Issues in Quantum Mechanics and Their Applications is awarded to Ignacio Cirac (Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics) and Peter Zoller (University of Innsbruck & IQOQI) for their recent groundbreaking proposals in quantum optics and atomic physics on how to engineer quantum systems to carry out novel information processing tasks, in particular for extending the applications of quantum simulators to lattice gauge theories, showing how long range entanglement can be estimated via statistical measurements, and using Projected Entangled Pair States for the theoretical study of quantum many body systems.
