2014 - Silver Medal Award---Jacob Taylor

Dr. Taylor is recognized for his pioneering advances in making compact, practical quantum devices that bridge the familiar classical world we live in with the exotic quantum world, where matter at the smallest scales exhibits surprising and powerful properties. His groundbreaking research is paving the way for secure quantum communication, and is leading to the development of a new generation of sensors that in the long term may provide the most accurate measurements of forces at the molecular level, and could vastly improve in vivo magnetic imaging through higher resolution MRIs.
