ANTON ZEILINGER is a physicist who has held teaching and research positions
at M.I.T., the Universities of Innsbruck and Oxford, at the Technical
Universities of Vienna and Munich, at the College de France in Paris.
Presently he is a Professor of Physics at the Quantum Optics, Quantum Nanophysics, Quantum Information Institute of University of Vienna.
His work has received world-wide attention, most notably his first realization
of quantum teleportation and most recently our quantum interference
experiments with buckyball molecules, the largest objects ever to have
demonstrated quantum phenomena. In terms of research his next goal is
to extend the validity of quantum phenomena experimentally to the realm
of even larger objects and perhaps even to life itself.
He has written a number of articles on quantum physics for a general
audience in journals like Scientific American, Nature, Science, Neue
Zurcher Zeitung and Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.
trade book, Dance of the Photons: From Einstein to Quantum Teleportation,
will be published in English in the US in October 2010.
