754. WE-Heraeus-Seminar - Sensing with Quantum Light - SQL2021 - from 26 Sep - 29 Sep 2021

26.09 → 29.09 2021 | "Physikzentrum Bad Honnef", located near Bonn/Germany, Germany

This small-but-beautiful seminar-conference (organized by the Wilhelm and Else Heraeus Foundation, and Dr. Sven Ramelow and Dr. Frank Kühneman as Scientific Organizers) will cover theoretical and experimental aspects of sensing with quantum light. Topics will include modalities like sensing with squeezed or entangled light, sensing with undetected photons via nonlinear interferometers, spectroscopy with entangled light, the generation of highly non-degenerate photons, high-dimensionally entangled light and all their application potential for real-world sensing tasks.

By bringing together established scientists from leading research groups in the field, junior scientists and graduate students, participants from fundamental and applied physics and industry the seminar aims at providing a vibrant forum for the exchange of ideas and discussion.

If the situation of the CoViD pandemic allows for it at the time of this event, it will be held as a hybrid seminar, enabling the attendees either to participate on site or online. Otherwise it will be held as an online-only seminar (via the platform MeetAnyway).

For all participants of this seminar, except invited speakers, it is required to apply for admittance. Therefore, please express your interest in participating using the application form on the webpage. As part of their efforts to create equal opportunities the Wilhelm and Else Heraeus-Foundation and the organizers encourage in particular applications of women.

Note, that for all participants, complimentary on-site and full-board accommodation is generously provided by the Wilhelm and Else Heraeus Foundation, and there is no conference fee. Please note however that the total number of participants on site is limited to 50 unfortunately, due to Covid restrictions.

In your application, please briefly outline your motivation to participate. Please note, for postdoctoral researchers, PhD students, and graduate students it is mandatory to present a poster and, thus, to submit an abstract. Furthermore, the scientific organizers will select some submissions for a contributed talk.

Sincerely yours,
Sven and Frank
