Chao-Yang Lu, who was born in 1982 in Zhejiang Province, has recently been nominated as the recipient of the 2021 Rolf Landauer and Charles H. Bennett Award in Quantum Computing by the American Physical Society (APS). Lu was awarded for his significant contributions to optical quantum information sciences, especially on solid-state quantum light sources, quantum teleportation, and optical quantum computing. 


According to the description on the website of the Division of Quantum Physics and Quantum Information, University of Science and Technology of China, Professor Lu obtained his Bachelor's degree from the University of Science and Technology of China in 2004, and his Ph.D. in Physics from the Cavendish Laboratory, the University of Cambridge in 2011. His primary research interest focuses on quantum foundations, quantum computation, solid-state quantum photonics, multi-particle entanglement, quantum teleportation, atomic arrays, superconducting qubits, etc.

Professor Lu has published more than 90 articles in Reviews of Modern Physics, Science, Nature, Nature research journals, PNAS, and PRL, which attracted more than 10,000 citations. His work on quantum teleportation was selected as by Physics World as "Breakthrough of the Year 2015". His work on single-photon source and optical quantum computing was selected by the Optical Society of American as one of "Optics in 2016", "Optics in 2017", and "Optics in 2019". 


In recent years, the huge potential of quantum technology has been widely recognized. On account of the significance of this technology, the American Physical Society (APS) has established the Rolf Landauer and Charles H. Bennett Award in Quantum Computing to recognize recent, outstanding contributions in quantum information science by researchers in the field. The award particularly recognizes research involving quantum effects to perform computational and information-management tasks that would be impossible or infeasible by purely classical means.
