Aephraim M. Steinberg

Professor Aephraim M. Steinberg has been honoured with the Rutherford Memorial Medal in Physics, awarded for outstanding research in any branch of physics.

Professor Steinberg works at the forefront of experimental quantum optics and quantum information. He is internationally known for his seminal work, both experimental and theoretical, on "superluminal" effects in tunnelling and optical propagation, as well as for his ongoing projects using ultracold atoms and entangled photons to study the subtle mysteries of quantum mechanics along with their potential applications to information processing. Professor Steinberg has rapidly become a world leader in two major areas of quantum physics.

The medals and awards are illustrations of RSC’s longstanding commitment to recognizing scholarly excellence.
