Gender: Male Race or Ethnicity: White Occupation: Physicist Nationality: England Executive summary: Quantum cryptography Artur Ekert is a leading investigator of quantum computation who, in 1991, devised of a system of quantum cryptography, in which datacarrying quantumentangled pairs of photons are transmitted by laser in such a way that any interference will be detected. He has also studied atomic clocks, decoherence free subspaces, entanglement swapping, quantum cloning and purification, and the relation between mathematical proofs and the laws of physics.
