Prof. Nicolas Gisin Awarded The First Bell Prize

The First Biennial John Stewart Bell Prize for Research on Fundamental Issues in Quantum Mechanics and their Applications is awarded to Prof. Nicolas Gisin for his theoretical and experimental work on foundations and applications of quantum physics, in particular: quantum non-locality, quantum cryptography and quantum teleportation. With sources of single and entangled photons at telecommunications wavelength, he has implemented these quantum effects on a commercial optical fibre network in the 10-100 km range. The prize will be awarded at the Conference on Quantum Information and Quantum Control III in August in Canada. Use the player below to see a video of the ceremony and Prof. Gisin's talk.
