'Cold and ultracold molecules', Obergurgl, Austria
An event entitled 'Cold and ultracold molecules' will take place from 18 to 23 November 2012 in Obergurgl, Austria.
During the last 15 years spectacular advances have been made in controlling quantum systems composed of atomic constituents. This has revolutionising the field of traditional atomic, molecular, and optical physics, opening up such diverse areas as precision spectroscopy, quantum information, quantum many-body and condensed matter physics.
The challenge is now to reach the same level of control in molecular systems. In this emerging, strongly multi-disciplinary field, challenges range from the production of cold and ultracold molecules to the application of these cold and ultracold molecules to precision spectroscopy, few-body and many-body quantum physics, chemical physics, and quantum chemistry.
The event to bring together scientists from these diverse fields to develop new ideas and approaches for the realisation of cold and ultracold molecular gases and identify new research directions and applications of these novel systems.For further information, please visit: http://www.esf.org/index.php?id=9144
