Quantum Scientists win major APS awards

February 2018

International quantum scientists John Thomas (Davisson-Germer Prize) and Peter Zoller (Norman Ramsey Prize) were honoured with major awards of The American Physical Society in 2018. John Thomas has pioneered the study of strongly interacting Fermi gases, an integral part of CQOS laboratory research as well. Peter Zoller is an expert in quantum information theory, which is also studied in theoretical work at CQOS. These awards demonstrate the huge and increasing significance of quantum and optical science in modern physics.
