Frontiers of Quantum Optics

Logo of the International Year of Light 2015 (vertical)

A very special event in the International Year of Light will take place on October 25-30, 2015, in the Physikzentrum in Bad Honnef, Germany, and advanced master and PhD students are very welcome to participate.
The 600th Heraeus seminar will give an overview on the recent achievements in the field of quantum optics, namely the Bose Einstein condensation of light and matter, Hawking radiation, the Unruh effect, tests of the foundations of quantum mechanics, etc.

Confirmed speakers of the seminar are the world’s leading experts in the field of quantum optics, including the three Nobel Laureates: Prof. William D. Philipps, Prof. Dr. Theodor W. Hänsch and Prof. Dr. Roy J. Glauber.

Thanks to the generous support of the Heraeus foundation, accommodation and meals will be provided for all selected participants free of charge.

Don’t miss this fascinating opportunity to learn more about the quantum nature of light and matter!

Balaton Summer School

The Hungarian Association of Physics Students (Mafihe) organizes the Balaton Summer School (BSS), which will be held July 20 – July 26, 2015 at Lake Balaton, Hungary.

The Summer School tries to complete the education of the physics students at the university with giving them the opportunity to deepen their knowledge in a special branch of science and learn the newest achievements in research. It is also the place where the students have the chance to discuss their ideas and use the knowledge which they gained during the semesters.

Speakers are invited in all the hot topics in physics which are related to light. The topics will include spectroscopy, photonics, quantum optics, astrophysics and laser physics.

LAMELIS 2015 – Summer school on Lasers in Medicine and Life Sciences

The city of Szeged is proud to have been chosen as the site of one of the four pillars of a massive European laser project entitled ELI (Extreme Light Infrastructure). Szeged is going to host ELI-ALPS (Attosecond Light Pulse Source), a facility dedicated to ultra-short laser pulses. Apart from breaking new ground in the study of very fast atomic and molecular processes, it is also expected to bring about improvements in medicine and life sciences. To discuss and disseminate the implications of these developments, the University of Szeged organised a summer school entitled Lasers in Medicine and Life Sciences (LAMELIS) in 2014 (the talks are available on Youtube). The organisers feel that the feedback they have received on the quality of the talks and the atmosphere of the first event is not only an encouragement but also an obligation to establish a tradition, so they announce a LAMELIS again this year. The LAMELIS 2015 summer school will be held between 13th and 18th July.

The summer school is open to both medical students and physics students. Although the theoretical depth of talks is tailored for medical students, the programme can also benefit physics students as they can learn of medical applications of lasers directly from distinguished experts of the field and receive first-hand information on the current status of ELI-ALPS.

ICPS 2014 in Heidelberg

The International Conference of Physics Students (ICPS) 2014 will take place from 10th to 17th of August 2014 in Heidelberg, Germany. It is the main event of IAPS and is organised by physics students for physics students. It will bring together around 450 young researchers from all over the world and features invited lectures by top-class scientists, presentations and posters by students as well as exciting workshops, lab tours and a physics show at Heidelberg University. A one-day trip to the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) is included in the program and the participants will be able to visit many exciting experiments. Additional excursions to research facilities and world leading companies as Mercedes, Bosch or TRUMPF will give an insight into some of Germany’s state of the art research. As guest speakers we can already present Metin Tolan (Shaken, not stirred! James Bond in the Focus of Physics), Karlheinz Meier (From Ions to Electrons – Physical Models of Brain Circuits) and John Dudley, president of the European Physical Society (Surviving in Science: What they don’t tell you about careers in research!). More guest lectures will be announced soon!
