Manny Knill Elected APS Fellow
Emanuel (Manny) Knill, a mathematician in the NIST Mathematical and
Computational Sciences Division in Boulder, has been elected
a fellow of the American Physical Society (APS) "for
fundamental contributions to our understanding of the
control and manipulation of quantum systems, including
quantum error correction, determination of tolerable error
rates, and linear optics quantum computing."
The APS's Division of Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics
recommended the nomination, which was conferred at the
APS meeting in March 2006.
Fellowship in the APS is limited to no more than one-half of one
percent of APS membership.
