The International Symposium "Quantum metrology with photons and atoms"

Date: 
2011-09-17
Conference/Workshop/Place: 
Toruń, Poland

The symposium will be held on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of National Laboratory for Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics. The Laboratory is a national consortium involving among other institutions University of Warsaw, a partner in the Q-ESSENCE project. One of the themes of the symposium will be quantum-enhanced metrology. The meeting will provide a platform to exchange ideas and recent development with other sub-fields of modern metrology.
 

The objective of the Symposium is to discuss recent advances in quantum metrology with photons and atoms, in particular:

  •  optical atomic clocks
  •  quantum enhanced metrology
  •   current trends in time and frequency measurements

Speakers include:

  • Rafał Demkowicz-Dobrzański, Uniwersytet Warszawski
  • Gabriele Ferrari, European Laboratory for Nonlinear Spectroscopy, Firenze
  • Marcin Lipiński, Akademia Górniczo-Hutnicza, Kraków
  • Jerome Lodewyck, Systemes de Référence Temps Espace, Paris
  • Morgan Mitchell, Institut de Ciencies Fotoniques, Barcelona
  • Matteo Paris, Universita degli Studi di Milano
  • Krzysztof Szymaniec, National Physical Laboratory, Teddington
