PAN Jianwei, born on March 11, 1970, in Dongyang, Zhejiang province. He obtained his Bachelor and Master degrees in Theoretical Physics from University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) in 1992 and 1995. In 1996, he went abroad for studying in Austria and obtained his Ph.D. degree in Experimental Physics from the University of Vienna in 1999. In 2001, he was appointed as the full professor of physics by USTC. In 2011, he was elected as the academician of Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS). In 2012, he was elected as the World Academy of Science (TWAS) Fellow. The research of Jian-Wei Pan focuses on quantum optics, quantum information and quantum foundations. As one of pioneers in experimental quantum information science, he has accomplished a series of profound achievements. Due to his numerous contribution to quantum communication and multi-photon entanglement manipulation, quantum information science has become one of the most rapidly developing fields of physical science in China in recent years.
