Conference: Impurity Physics with Cold Atoms and Ions

21-23 August 2023


The conference aims to explore the physics of quantum degenerate atomic gases, cold ions, as well as atomically thin semiconductors with a particular focus on the role of impurities and mixtures. It will provide a venue for sharing latest results and discussing current challenges in this vibrant field of research.
