School on Interaction of Light with Cold Atoms

Light-matter interaction is one of the oldest, broadest and most fundamental scientific topics. Progress made during the last three decades in the preparation of cold matter and the suppression of classical noise allowed the emergence and the experimental manipulation of special coherence properties of matter and light, with applications to quantum sensing and quantum information processing.

This school is for students and young researchers interested in fields related to light scattering, cold and ultra-cold matter, quantum information and quantum optics. Participants will be invited to give short talks and present posters on their research activities. There is no registration fee and limited funds are available for travel and local expenses.

This activity will be followed by the ‘Experimental Week of Atomic Optics (February 13-17, 2017)’ to be held at USP-São Carlos (IFSC-USP). The students interested in participating in this experimental event should send an email to Limited funds for travel (São Paulo – São Carlos) and local expenses will be provided by CePOF – Centro de Pequisas de Ótica e Fotônica.
