Join us in congratulating Michel H. Devoret and Robert Schoelkopf!

Michel H. Devoret and Robert Schoelkopf, Yale University, received the 2024 Comstock Prize in Physics.

Devoret and Schoelkopf’s groundbreaking work established non-linear quantum optics in electrical circuits at the single-photon level and has enabled new insights into, and control of, macroscopic quantum systems, and advances in quantum measurements, quantum information processing and quantum error correction.

Devoret and Schoelkopf have advanced the field through their development and practical application of ‘Circuit QED’ (circuit quantum electrodynamics), which allows quantum information to be distributed by microwave signals on wires. The strong coupling of qubits and photons in circuit QED enables many applications in quantum computation and sensing.

Their close collaboration has transformed the way we think about quantum information, quantum optics, and the quantum world in general, leading us into a new era of research and applications. 

The Comstock Prize in Physics recognizes a North American resident for a recent innovative discovery or investigation in electricity, magnetism, or radiant energy. The prize is presented every five years with a $50,000 prize and $50,000 to support the recipient's research.
