Short citation at year of election

Hans Bachor invented, and was the first to demonstrate, spatially multiplexed quantum optical communication systems. This discovery opened a new path for engineering practical quantum communication technologies. The demonstration was as elegant as it was innovative; the outcome of a lifetime of experimental achievement at the interface between quantum and classical optics.
