Jeremy O'Brien, Professorial Research Fellow in Physics and Electrical Engineering, has received two awards for his pioneering work in the new field of integrated quantum photonics.

Jeremy O'Brien, Professorial Research Fellow in Physics and Electrical Engineering, has been awarded the 2010 Adolph Lomb Medal by the Optical Society of America. The award recognises Professor O’Brien’s seminal contributions to quantum optics, optical quantum metrology and quantum information through the foundation of the field of integrated quantum photonics.

Professor O’Brien has also been awarded the 2010 IUPAP Prize in Atomic Molecular and Optical Physics, again for his pioneering work in integrated quantum photonics.
