Howard Mark Wiseman (born 19 June 1968) is a theoretical quantum physicist notable for his work on quantum feedback control, quantum measurements, quantum information, open quantum systems, the many interacting worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics, and other fundamental issues in quantum mechanics. Wiseman was born in Brisbane, Australia and received his B.Sc.(Hons) in Physics from the University of Queensland in 1991. He completed his PhD in physics under Gerard J. Milburn at the University of Queensland in 1994, with a thesis entitled Quantum Trajectories and Feedback. After his PhD, Wiseman undertook a postdoc under Dan Walls at the University of Auckland. From 1996 to 2009 he held Australian Research Council (ARC) research fellowships. He is currently a Physics Professor at Griffith University, where he is the Director of the Centre for Quantum Dynamics. He is also an Executive Node Manager in the Centre for Quantum Computation and Communication Technology, an ARC Centre of Excellence. His awards include the Bragg Medal of the Australian Institute of Physics, the Pawsey Medal of the Australian Academy of Science and the Malcolm Macintosh Medal, one of the Prime Minister's Prizes for Science. He is a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Science, and a Fellow of the American Physical Society. (source: Wikipedia)
Aephraim Steinberg is a Professor in the Department of Physics at the University of Toronto. He is also a founding member of Toronto's Institute for Optical Sciences, a member and past director of the Centre for Quantum Information and Quantum Control (CQIQC), an affiliate member of the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics and a principal investigator in Photonics Research Ontario, the Canadian Institute for Photonic Innovations, and QuantumWorks. Dr. Steinberg received his undergraduate degree from Yale University in 1988 and his Ph.D. from the University of California at Berkeley in 1994. He then held post-doctoral fellowships at the Université de Paris VI and the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology before moving to Toronto in 1996. He has been a guest professor at the University of Vienna; the Institut d'Optique Théorique et Appliquée in Orsay, France; and the University of Queensland in Australia. In 2006, he received the Canadian Association of Physicists Herzberg Medal and the Rutherford Medal in Physics from the Royal Society of Canada. In 2007, he received a Steacie Fellowship from NSERC, and a McLean Fellowship (Connaught Foundation, University of Toronto). He is a Fellow of the Institute of Physics (UK), the American Physical Society, and the Optical Society of America. He joined CIFAR's Quantum Information Science Program in 2003. Dr. Steinberg’s interests lie in fundamental quantum-mechanical phenomena and the control & characterization of the quantum states of systems ranging from laser-cooled atoms to individual photons. His experimental program is two-pronged, using both nonclassical two-photon interference and laser-cooled atoms to study issues such as quantum information & computation, decoherence and the quantum-classical boundary, tunneling times, weak measurement & retrodiction in quantum mechanics, and the control and characterization of novel quantum states.

Dieter Schuch (1953 in Frankfurt am Main) ist ein deutscher Chemiker (Theoretische Chemie). Er ist Professor an der Goethe-Universität Frankfurt am Main. Schuch studierte ab 1973 Chemie (und Physik) an der Universität Frankfurt mit dem Diplom 1978 bei Hermann Hartmann (Untersuchungen der Spin-Bahn-Wechselwirkung für ein Problem mit torusförmiger Potentialmulde) und der Promotion 1982 (Theoretische Hilfsmittel zur Beschreibung der Ionenbewegung in der Ionen-Cyclotron-Resonanz-Spektrometrie). Er war Redakteur der Theoretica Chimica Acta, war 1986 Gastdozent be IBM Kingston in New York und habilitierte sich 1992 in Frankfurt (Komplexe nichtlineare Zusammenhänge im Rahmen einer wellenmechanischen Beschreibung reversibler und irreversibler Dynamik), mit Kyu-Myung Chung als Berater. Danach war er untere anderem bei Peter Schwerdtfeger in Auckland und bei Marcos Moshinsky in Mexiko-Stadt. 2002 wurde er außerplanmäßiger Professor am Institut für Theoretische Physik in Frankfurt. Er befasst sich mit exakt lösbaren Problemen in klassischer Physik und Quantenmechanik, dahinter stehender Gruppentheorie und dynamischen Symmetrien einschließlich Supersymmetrie, Irreversibilität in klassischer und quantenmechanischer Dynamik (und Roll der Zeit), Übergängen zwischen klassischer und Quantenmechanik (Semiklassische Näherung) und nichtlinearen Formulierungen und Erweiterungen der Quantenmechanik.
Helmut Rauch (born 22 January 1939 in Krems an der Donau, Lower Austria) is an Austrian physicist. He is specially known for his pioneering experiments on neutron interference. Rauch studied Physics at Vienna University of Technology and worked at Atominstitut Vienna. He has also been affiliated with Forschungszentrum Jülich and Institut Laue-Langevin in Grenoble. In 1974, Rauch, together with Ulrich Bonse and Wolfgang Treimer, demonstrated the first matter wave interference of Neutrons. This demonstrated the wave-like nature of neutrons for the first time and was another experimental proof that not only photons can be described by waves, but also massive particles. Further they demonstrated the fundamental symmetry of spin 1/2 particles under rotations.
