At its closing session on November 24, 2014, the jury decided to award the main prize to
- Dr. Nicolai Friis
for the thesis Cavity mode entanglement in relativistic quantum information focused on relativistic aspects of quantum entanglement, whose topic was found contemporary and timely in the context of quantum information theory, which was so far oriented mostly to non-relativistic problems.
The jury also decided to give a honourable mention to the thesis of
- Ing. Lucie Augustovicova, Ph.D.
entitled Quantum dynamics of small molecules which made an interesting contribution to a highly important interdisciplinary topic in between chemistry, molecular physics, astrophysics and cosmology.
