AAAS Awards 2018 Newcomb Cleveland Price to Chinese Physicists for Quantum Communication Experiment

( The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) announced Thursday that a team of 34 Chinese physicists led by Pan Jianwei with the University of Science and Technology of China had won the award 2018 Newcomb Cleveland Prize for their study on quantum communication that lays the groundwork for ultra-secure communication networks of the future.
The research group used a satellite called Quantum Experiments at Space Scale (QUESS) or Micius to send entangled photon pairs through the near-vacuum of space, measuring the quantum keys at receiving stations over 1,200 kilometers apart.
This is the first time that a Chinese team has won the prize with its home-grown research.
