Congratulations to Wolfgang Peter Schleich, Universitat Ulm, Germany, the 2021 recipient of the Herbert Walther Award. This award is co-presented with the Deutsche Physikalische Gesell­schaft (DPG)

Schleich is recognized “for pioneering contributions to topics including gyroscopes and general relativity, Schleich-Wheeler oscillations, quantum state engineering, quantum optics in phase space, Gauss-sum factorization and wave packet dynamics and the red shift controversy resolution in atom interferometry.”

“As a trailblazer in quantum optics research, Wolfgang Peter Schleich has greatly contributed to our fundamental understanding of quantum mechanics and a myriad of topics ranging from interference to black holes,” said 2020 President Stephen Fantone. “He has broadened our knowledge and served the optics and photonics community on a scale befitting this distinguished recognition.”
