Charles H. Bennett received his Ph.D. from Harvard University in 1970 for molecular dynamics studies (computer simulation of molecular motion). He worked at the Argonne Laboratory for two years following graduation.

He has been at IBM since 1972, where he has explored various aspects of the relation between physics and information. He developed a practical system of quantum cryptography, in collaboration with Gilles Brassard and John Smolin. Other research interests include algorithmic information theory, and the physics of computation. In 1993, Bennett and Brassard with other collaborators discovered "quantum teleportation."

Bennett is a Fellow of the American Physical Society, and a member of the National Academy of Sciences.
