Do not miss out this year’s Central European Workshop on Quantum Optics!

It will take place 26-30 June 2017 at the Department of Physics, Technical University of Denmark, in the beautiful surroundings of Lyngby (near Copenhagen). Some information about the event can be found at the address www.cewqo2017.dk . The conference is preceded by a PhD summer school in optical quantum technology.

The many body problem
-------------------------------------
How is it possible that the same and simple constituent atoms, when joined together, produce such a beautiful and diverse world? One can see this as a consequence of collective emergence, an aspect of physics relevant to several disciplines, from statistical physics to condensed matter, to high energy physics.

The Light-Matter Interactions Unit (https://groups.oist.jp/light) at OIST, headed by Prof Síle Nic Chormaic, invites applications for a postdoctoral scholar or staff scientist. The focus of the project will be on one of the research areas within the unit such as (i) nano-optics, (ii) plasmonic nanoparticle trapping, (iii) orbital angular momentum carrying light, (iv) cold alkali atoms for quantum technologies based on optical nanofibers. Only candidates with experience related to at least one of these areas should apply.
