    Quantum Physicist Anton Zeilinger explains what it means to be a physicist, as well as a few physics concepts.

    Zeilinger has held positions at the University of Innsbruck, the Technical University of Munich, the Technical University of Vienna and MIT, and distinguished visiting positions at Humboldt University in Berlin, Merton College of Oxford University and the Collége de France in Paris. Zeilinger has received many awards for his scientific work, among the most recent being the King Faisal Prize (2005), and the first Newton Prize of the IOP (2007). He is a member of six Scientific Academies and Professor of Physics at the University of Vienna and Scientific Director of the Institute of Quantum Optics and Quantum Information of the Austrian Academy of Sciences. Zeilinger's pioneering conceptual and experimental contributions to the foundations of quantum physics have become the cornerstone for the rapidly-evolving field of quantum information.
