Free online quantum reports published plus two quantum award winners named.Institute of Physics Publishing (IOPP) is today, Friday April 14th, celebrating World Quantum Day with its announcement of a special collection of cutting-edge quantum research published in the last two years – and the winners of two “prestigious quantum awards”.
The IOPP quantum collection is openly available for anyone to read and showcases world-class quantum research published in the academic journals Materials for Quantum Technology, Quantum Science and Technology, New Journal of Physics and Reports on Progress in Physics. The special collection will also include unique perspectives from women in quantum and their contributions to this popular field.
IOPP states, "Quantum research and technology is evolving rapidly, and fresh perspectives are key to the development of a field that connects many disciplines such as quantum chemistry and meteorology."
Covering various quantum research areas, IOPP has also announced the winners of two prestigious quantum awards:
Both winners have been invited to give a special award lecture, and submit a perspective related to their work to the IOPP journal Quantum Science and Technology. The award lecture will take place on the 25th of May and people interested in attending the lectures can register their interest on the IOPP website.
Dr Tim Smith, Head of Portfolio Development at IOPP, commented: “Yet again the nominations we received for these awards were outstanding, and the judging process was both tough and very enjoyable. On behalf of the awards committee our congratulations go to this year’s two very deserving winners both of whom have already made significant contributions in the field of quantum science despite just being at the start of their research careers. Demonstrating great early promise, we are excited to see how their research paths develop, and what important scientific advances they both might make in the coming years.”
The winners were chosen by a committee of eight leading quantum specialists who selected the work for their exceptional promise for the future of quantum research and technology and the expectation for longer term impact on the field and the quantum science community.
