Anton Zeilinger honored with the Quantum Communication Award 2008


The International Quantum Communication Award for outstanding achievements in quantum communication research is presented at each QCMC (Quantum Communication, Measurement and Computing). That award is sponsored by the Tamagawa University.

This year, the award winners are: 
  • Anton Zeilinger (University of Vienna), for pioneering experiments on quantum teleportation and multi-partite entanglement phenomena.
  • Jeffrey Shapiro (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), for seminal contributions to the communication theory of systems with quantum effects.
  • Akira Furusawa (University of Tokyo), for pioneering experiments on quantum teleportation and macroscopic superposition states.
 In the past, the award winners have been as follows:
  • 1996: Charles Bennett, Carl Helstrom, Alexander Holevo, Horace Yuen
  • 1998: Jeffrey Kimble, Peter Shor
  • 2000: Paul Benioff, Christopher Monroe, David Wineland
  • 2002: David Deutsch, Serge Haroche, Benjamin Schumacher
  • 2004: Richard Jozsa, Prem Kumar
  • 2006: Ignacio Cirac, Philippe Grangier, William Wootters, Peter Zoller
