Opening of the Center for Quantum Optics and Quantum Matter (CQOM)

The newly established Center for Quantum Optics and Quantum Matter (CQOM) will hold its official launch event on November 8 at the Aarhus Institute of Advanced Studies.

[Translate to English:] CQOM er et forskningscenter til fremme af synergien imellem en række forskningsgrupper på Science and Technology

The Center for Quantum Optics and Quantum Matter brings together 10 experimental and theoretical groups who study diverse quantum phenomena and a range of quantum systems, from macroscopic quantum-membranes, over ultracold atomic gases, to mesoscopic ion crystals and single particles confined in external fields or quantum liquids. The CQOM aims to create a platform for interactions that emphasises common directions and synergies in this field. The opening day will also feature the first CQOM-Colloquium given by Richard Schmidt (ITAMP, Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics and Harvard University), and provide an overview over the CQOM activities. Its research directions will be presented and discussed within a poster session and a series of talks by all participating groups. The program of the launch event is available here.
