1982 Reality Foundation Prize to John F. Clauser, shared with John Bell.
"For experimental and theoretical research into quantum foundations for devising variations of the Bell Inequality which subject local realistic models of nature to experimental tests; for performing experiments which decisively exclude semi-classical models of the radiation field; for carrying out experiments which establish non-locality as a general feature of objective reality."
2010 Wolf Prize in physics to John F. Clauser (USA), shared with Alain Aspect (France) and Anton Zeilinger (Austria).
It was awarded by Israel’s Pres. Shimon Peres (in the Knesset) “For their conceptual and experimental contributions to the foundations of quantum physics, specifically an increasingly sophisticated series of tests of Bell’s inequalities or extensions there of using entangled quantum states.”
2011 Thompson-Reuters Citation Laureate in Physics to John F. Clauser
"For his tests of Bell’s inequalities and his research in quantum entanglement."
