Juan Ignacio Cirac, Director of the Theory Division of the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics in Germany, is a leading quantum information theorist whose group recently received the 2009 Carl Zeiss Research Award. His research aims to characterize quantum phenomena, and to develop a new theory of information based on quantum mechanics, work which may ultimately contribute to the development of quantum computers.
