In 2023 we are going to celebrate the centenary of Louis de Broglie’s revolutionary idea that all massive matter has to be described by quantum waves. This idea inspired Erwin Schrödinger to formulate his wave equation and it is at the heart of prominent and ubiquitous matter-wave research in Vienna, on systems as diverse as electrons, neutrons, atoms, degenerate atomic clouds, molecules, clusters, and nanoparticles. Today, matter-wave physics addresses the foundations of physics as well as applications in inertial sensing, precision measurement of fundamental constants, electron microscopy, molecule metrology, explorations of the limits of quantum physics or its interface to gravity theory, chemistry, and biology. The VDSP Summer Academy wants to celebrate these achievements by introducing advanced bachelor and master students from all over the world to the timely topic of matter wave physics.
