Hybrid Approaches to Quantum-Information Processing (Sept. 18-19/2018)

Quantum optics has traditionally been rooted in atomic and optical physics, but is currently undergoing a rapid transformation. Ideas, concepts, and implementations of quantum optics are now being expanded to and strongly benefit from other areas of research including nanophotonics, optomechanics, and solid-state physics. The ultimate vision for quantum photonics is ‘the quantum internet’, which would provide remote distribution of quantum entanglement over global distances by photons. Towards such a goal, the distinct advantages of different platforms and disciplines need to be combined.

The symposium “Hybrid Approaches to Quantum-Information Processing” brings together world-leading experts within solid-state quantum optics, atomic physics, and quantum optomechanics. The conference is “Gordon-Research-style” with the purpose of stimulating scientific discussions and interactions in an informal atmosphere bringing together young researchers and experts.

The symposium is held in Copenhagen at the historic site of the Royal Danish Academy of Sciences and Letters. The symposium comprises invited talks, contributed talks, and poster presentations. Interested participants should register before August 15, 2018 on the link: DNRF Center Conference. Please note, that there is a limited number of seats.

Submission of an abstract of max. 1 page can be done by sending an email to: Charlotte Hviid: hviid@nbi.ku.dk

Venue: Royal Danish Academy of Sciences and Letters
H.C. Andersens Boulevard 35
DK-1553 København V


The symposium follows after the inauguration of the new Danish National Research Foundation Center of Excellence for Hybrid Quantum Networks, which takes place on September 17 and all participations are invited to that as well. For participation in the inauguration please register at hviid@nbi.ku.dk before September 1, 2018.

Participation in both the symposium and the inauguration is free of charge.

Local organizers: Albert Schliesser, Anders Sørensen, Peter Lodahl, Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen.
