Dear colleagues,

We are pleased to announce the international conference titled “100 years of matter waves – Louis de Broglie conference 2023” in order to commemorate the 100th anniversary of de Broglie’s founding papers proposing the hypothesis of matter waves, one of the starting points of modern quantum mechanics. The conference will take place July 3 to July 5 2023 at Sorbonne-Université (Cordeliers campus) in central Paris.
The conference aims to cover several topics related to matter waves, with themes ranging from the state of the art concerning the observation of matter waves (macro-molecules, atomic interferometry and cold atoms, electron optics and neutronics), to fundamental questions concerning the nature of these waves, as well as presentations discussing technological applications or giving a historical perspective. You will find more information on the conference website, which is still under construction:

Call for Abstracts: We welcome submissions for posters and a few contributed talks. Information will soon be available on the conference webpage.

The deadline for Abstract submission is 13 May 2023. Acceptance will be notified at the latest by: 26 May 2023.

Registration: Registration will soon be open (see Registration link on the website).
We look forward to seeing you at the conference.
