Chinese quantum physist LU Chaoyang was awarded the 2017 Fresnel prize for fundamental aspects by the European Physical Society, for his outstanding achievement in quantum light sources, quantum teleportation and optical quantum computing. The Plenary Ceremony will take place on June 27th  in Munich, Germany. 

The prize is named after Augustin-Jean Fresnel, a leading physicist in the 19th century. It is regarded as the highest global honor for scientists under the age of 35 in the field of quantum electronics and optics. 

LU Chaoyang was born in 1982 in Zhejiang, China. He obtained his Bachelor's degree from the University of Science and Technology of China in 2004, and obtained his PhD in Physics from the Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge in 2011. During his graduate studies under the supervision of PAN Jianwei and Mete Atatüre, he studied multi-photon entanglement and optically active quantum dots.  

He is currently a Professor of Physics at the University of Science and Technology of China, where he focuses on research on scalable quantum photonics, quantum computation, and quantum foundations.
