2011: Sandu Popescu
The second biennial John Stewart Bell Prize for Research on Fundamental Issues in Quantum Mechanics and their Applications is awarded to Sandu Popescu, Professor of Physics at the University of Bristol, UK, for discoveries illuminating the nature of nonlocality and entanglement, the investigation of stronger-than-quantum non-signaling correlations, and the application of quantum theory to thermodynamics.

2009: Nicolas Gisin
In 2009, the first biennial John Stewart Bell Prize for Research on Fundamental Issues in Quantum Mechanics and their Applications was awarded to Prof. Nicolas Gisin for his theoretical and experimental work on foundations and applications of quantum physics, in particular: quantum non-locality, quantum cryptography and quantum teleportation. With sources of single and entangled photons at telecommunications wavelength, he has implemented these quantum effects on a commercial optical fiber network in the 10-100 km range.
