Prof. Subir Sachdev
Prof. Subir Sachdev was awarded the Dirac Medal for the Advancement of Theoretical Physics by University of New South Wales and the Australian Institute of Physics. He also presented the Dirac Lecture on the topic of quantum entanglement and superconductivity.

The Medal was awarded "in recognition of his many seminal contributions to the theory of strongly interacting condensed matter systems: quantum phase transitions, including the idea of critical deconfinement and the breakdown of the conventional symmetry based Landau-Ginsburg-Wilson paradigm; the prediction of exotic 'spin-liquid' and fractionalized states; and applications to the theory of high-temperature superconductivity in the cuprate materials."
