FOMO-2014 (Frontiers on Matter Wave Optics 2014)

Scope of the conference:
The deBroglie waves evolved from textbook experiments on the foundations of quantum mechanics to a new kind of optics based on matter waves. Today, this field extends from experiments about the wave-particle dualism and decoherence, over coherent optics, non-linear optics, quantum atom optics and optics in periodic media to precision measurements.

Tailoring waves of all kind of matter and generation of complex matter-waves promises to perpetuate the fascination of this field over the next decade. This conference aims to bring together high-ranking scientist sharing this fascination and working at the frontiers of matter wave optics. Space will also be allotted to hot and new topics in the field of matter wave optics.

The conference will be on the island of Crete in Greece at the sea side next to Chania.
