2nd International Workshop on Rydberg Excitons in Semiconductors

Info about event


Friday 4 May 2018,  at 09:00 - 17:50



Dear all,


You are cordially invited to participate in the upcoming


2nd International Workshop on Rydberg Excitons in Semiconductors,


to be held next week from May 3 to May 4 at AIAS.


The workshop focus is on special types of excitons – bound pairs of electrons and holes in a semiconducting material – that can be produced in excited internal states by means of laser excitation. More than 60 years after their discovery in cuprous oxide semiconductors, the investigation of such Rydberg excitons is currently attracting increasing world-wide interest due to their vastly exaggerated properties. Just like for their atomic counterparts, the enhanced external-field sensitivity and strong mutual interactions of such Rydberg states makes them attractive systems for fundamental studies of basic quantum phenomena and suggests exciting opportunities for future applications. The workshop will bring together international researchers to share latest results, to discuss current challenges, and to explore future perspectives and new opportunities in this field.


More details about the event can be found here. The workshop is open to everyone and participation, outside of lunch and dinner, is free of charge.



Best regards,
