We are pleased to inform you that following a very successful editions of Benasque 1998, 2000, 2003, 2005, 2007, and 2009, we are organizing another workshop of the similar type from June 12 to July 1, 2011. This is to invite you to apply using the electronic form that you can find on the website specified below. We encourage you to apply as soon as possible and not later than the end of March 2011. The number of participants at the Benasque Centre at any given time is limited to about 50.

James Dacey at PhysicsWorld writes: ''In a fascinating case of physics being turned on its head, a group of researchers at Yale University in the US has created an "anti-laser" that almost perfectly absorbs incoming beams of coherent light. The invention is based on a theoretical study reported last summer in which Douglas Stone and his Yale colleagues claimed that such a system could be possible in a device that they call a coherent perfect absorber (CPA).

The AtomChip Lab (www.bgu.ac.il/atomchip) at Ben-Gurion University (BGU) is searching for high quality candidates in a variety of fields, including, research into chip fabrication for quantum optics chips with atoms, ions and photons, fundamental research into atom optics with cold atoms, and applicative research which we are conducting in collaboration with the high-tech industry into atomic clocks and magnetic sensors with both hot and cold atoms. Our sub-group in theory also has open positions for qualified candidates.
