Artificial Atoms: from Quantum Physics to Applications

20-23 May 2013, Budapest, Hungary







Latest update:


This conference is the mid-term conference of the EU FP7-ICT DIAMANT Project (Diamond based atomic nanotechnologies) and also a large part of the activity in the EU FP7 ITN CCQED Project (Circuit and Cavity Quantum Electrodynamics) is represented.


The primary objective of this workshop is to survey the most recent advances of technologies enabling single atom- and artificial atom-based devices. These include the assembly of artificial molecular structures with magnetic dipole and optical interactions between engineered atoms embedded in solid-state lattices. The ability to control single atoms in diamond or similar solids under ambient operating conditions opens new perspectives for technologies based on nanoelectronics and nanophotonics. The scope of the workshop is extended towards the physics of strong coupling between atoms and radiation field modes. Beyond the traditional atom-cavity systems, artificial dipoles coupled to microwave radiation in circuit quantum electrodynamics is considered. All these technologies mutually influence each other in developing novel devices for sensing at the quantum level and for quantum information processing.
80 participants are planned.
