Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Wernsdorfer receives Hector Science Award
Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Wernsdorfer receives the Hector Science Prize 2019. The prize of the Hector Foundation has been awarded to outstanding professors in research and teaching in Germany since 2008.
The Hector Foundation II honors Prof. Dr. Wernsdorfer's groundbreaking contributions in the field of quantum materials and technology. His research aims, among other things, to realize an operational quantum computer. Prof. Dr. Wernsdorf has been Humboldt Professor at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) since 2016.
The discoveries he has made are partly thanks to his apprenticeship as an electrician. As he says himself, he approaches matters in a completely different way than many of his colleagues.
We congratulate Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Wernsdorfer for receiving the Hector Science Award and welcome him as a part of the Hector Fellow Academy.
