The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) announced Thursday that a team led by Pan Jianwei with the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) won the 2018 Newcomb Cleverland Prize.

It is the first time a Chinese team has won the award for its homegrown research.

The award will be presented at the annual meeting of the AAAS, slated to be held in Washington on Feb 14.

The Newcomb Cleverland Prize, the association’s oldest award, has honored the most influential research paper published in Science every year since 1923.

In 2017, Pan and his colleagues used a satellite named Micius, or Mozi, to achieve “quantum entanglement”, laying the groundwork for ultra-secure communication networks of the future.

The study was published in Science in Jun 16, 2017.

Founded in 1848, the AAAS is the world’s largest general scientific society and nonprofit sci-tech organization. It has 265 affiliated societies and 10 million members.
