Detlev Buchholz is a theoretical physicist at Gottingen University. He investigates quantum field theory, especially algebraic quantum field theory. His contributions include the concept of infraparticles.

Using the methods of Tomita-Takesaki theory he obtained the split property, a strong result about the locality of the theory, from nuclearity conditions of the theory [1] [2].

In 2008 he won the Max Planck Medal. It is awarded annually by the Deutsche Physikalische Gesellschaft (German:German Physical Society
