Dear Colleagues,

The 67th Scottish Universities Summer School in Physics will be held on the topic of "Quantum Information and Coherence" at the University of Strathclyde, in Glasgow, from 28th July to 9th August 2011.

A significant number of part bursaries are available for students applying before the 28th February 2011. For more information and registration page, please visit http://sussp67.phys.strath.ac.uk/

The current speaker list comprises

  • Markus Aspelmeyer
  • Immanuel Bloch
  • Dirk Bouwmeester
  • Mark Hillery
  • Norbert Lütkenhaus
  • Gerard Milburn
  • Martin Plenio
  • John Rarity
  • Christian Roos
  • Kalle-Antti Suominen
  • Atac Imamoglu

The last 15 years have seen a shift in the emphasis of fundamental quantum physics theory and experiments, from simply generating and measuring quantum systems towards their purposeful control and manipulation, the main driver being the development of quantum information. This has spawned applications such as quantum key distribution, information processing, and metrology. A key component of all the above is the generation and protection of coherence in quantum systems, and this makes up the other theme of the School.
