German-Polish physicist duo win 2014 Copernicus Award
Date:5/13/2014

tion in quantum cryptography and quantum metrology. Weinfurter has received numerous awards for his work, including the Philip Morris Prize for Research in 2003 and the Descartes Prize from the European Union in 2004. He has been a Max Planck Fellow at the Max-Planck-Institute of Quantum Optics in Garching since 2010 and is associated with Nobel Laureate Professor Theodor W. Hnsch's Department of Laser Spectroscopy.

Professor Marek Żukowski has been professor of physics since 1998 at the University of Gdansk. Initially appointed as associate professor, he has held a chair since 2006. He was head of the Department for Quantum Optics at the Institute for Physics at the University of Gdansk from 1996 to 2005 and is now head of the Institute. He habilitated in Torun in Poland, at the Nikolaus Kopernikus University, after achieving a "Proficiency Certificate in English grade A" in Cambridge in the UK. His doctorate in Gdansk followed a course of study in both physics and mathematics. Żukowski is a founding member of the National Quantum Information Centre of Gdansk, which was established in 2007, and since 2010 a member of the board of the National Centre for Science, a research funding organisation. He has received the Prize for Science from the Polish Ministry for Education four times and has been awarded prizes by the Rector of Gdansk University three times. Periods as a visiting professor in Beijing, China and the award in 2006 of a Wenner Gren Fellowship from Sweden, like his many years of collaboration with Professor Weinfurter, underline his position in a widely international network.

The two physicists are the fifth pair to receive the Copernicus Award from the DFG and the FNP, which since 2006 has been conferred every two years to two researchers, one from Germany and one from Poland. The award is named after the astronomer Nicolas Copernicus (1473-1543) and is intended to symbolise the close collaboration between the countries on r
