Achim Marx
Dr. Achim Marx of WMI received the Rotary Prize “Hofgarten” 2010 of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities in recognition of his pioneering work on solid state nanostructures and their application in quantum information processing systems. The research work of Dr. Marx resulted in important new scientific findings on the coherent dynamics of solid state nanostructures and the foundations of light-matter interaction. His work received broad international attention and is of particular relevance for the development of novel information and communication systems based on quantum mechanical principles.

The Bavarian Academy annually gives the Rotary Prize “Hofgarten” for the promotion of young scientists in all disciplines. The prize has been presented to Achim Marx on December 4, 2010 by the president of the Academy within an Annual Meeting of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities in the Munich Residence.
