Hamburg Prize for Theoretical Physics 2017
The Hamburg Centre for Ultrafast Imaging (CUI) and the Joachim Herz Stiftung will jointly award the Hamburg Prize for Theoretical Physics 2017 in the research areas of atoms, molecules, and quantum optics as well as condensed matter. The award honors outstanding contributions of a highly accomplished international researcher with personal prize money of EUR 40,000. The prize will be presented during CUI’s International Symposium in November in Hamburg.
Previous awardees are
Prof. Maciej Lewenstein, ICFO Barcelona (2010)
Prof. Peter Zoller, Universität Innsbruck (2011)
Prof. Shaul Mukamel, University of California (2012)
Prof. Chris H. Greene, Purdue University (2013)
Prof. Antoine Georges, Collège de France, École Polytechnique, Universität Genf (2014)
Prof. Dr. Ignacio Cirac, Max-Planck-Institut fuer Quantenoptik (2015)
Prof. Dr. Mikhail Katsnelson, Radboud Universiteit (2016)
The prize winner is expected to interact with the research groups and especially with young researchers of the cluster (e.g. via lectures and seminars) during one or more visits to Hamburg. Additional funds will be available for these visits.
The Cluster was established at Universität Hamburg within the framework of the German Excellence Initiative. Its main goal is to observe and analyze the dynamics of physical, chemical, and molecular biological processes.
