Announcement of the 508. WE Seminar "Quantum meets gravity and metrology"

We would like to announce the 508. WE Seminar „Quantum meets gravity and metrology“ to be held at the Physikzentrum Bad Honnef/Germany on June 3 – 8, 2012.

Scientific organizers are Wolfgang Ertmer, Ernst Rasel, Wolfgang Schleich and Piet Schmidt.

This seminar will explore the frontiers between quantum mechanics, gravity and the state-of-art of quantum metrology.

In the triangle of these three fields very fundamental challenges excite scientists and drive them to advance our present knowledge in unknown territories

Topics:

  • Quantum and gravity
  • Einstein equivalence principle 
  • Decoherence and entanglement
  • Quantum metrology with ions and neutral atoms
  • Gravity experiments with quantum systems 

In each of these themes we have gathered scientists, whose scientific work provided us with novel and ground breaking insights during their career or in their latest work

There will be no conference fees. Board and lodging will be generously funded by the Wilhelm and Else Heraeus Foundation.

Questions with regard to the conference can be directed to the scientific organisers.
