ESF Research Conferences

ESF-FWF Conference in Partnership with LFUI

Quantum Engineering of States and Devices: Theory and Experiments

5-10 June 2010

Universitätszentrum Obergurgl, Obergurgl, Austria

- Pasquale Sodano, Università di Perugia, Department of Physics, IT
- Andrea Trombettoni, Scuola Internazionale Superiore di Studi Avanzati, SISSA, IT

- Aigars Ekers, European Science Foundation, FR


The Conference is organized to facilitate the achievement of scientific excellence within European countries in the rapidly growing field of quantum engineering by providing a programme where leading scientists and young researchers from diverse physics communities will get a chance to present their work, to discuss scientific understanding and recent developments in complementary areas of  physics relevant for the quantum engineering of entangled states and quantum devices.

Recent results on the theory and experiments concerning quantum devices in superconducting, cold atoms, quantum optics and solid state systems will be reviewed together with latest achievements in quantum information significant for the engineering of quantum entangled states.

Speakers' presentations and recordings of the conference are available here
