About the Conference

Atoms, molecules, and light have been at the forefront of understanding quantum mechanics, since its discovery over 100 years ago.  Since then the field has progressed from understanding the most fundamental aspects of how particles behave under quantum mechanics to controlling individual atoms for creating new technologies. While matter and light are from ordinary experience rather different, with today’s control of coherent quantum phenomena many of the ideas freely cross their respective boundaries.  Some of the topics that will be covered at the conference include, but are not limited to, cold atoms & cold molecules, ultrafast & precision spectroscopy, quantum manipulation & precision measurement, quantum computing & quantum communication, and quantum metrology. In this conference we aim to bring together the leading experts working in the frontiers of atomic, molecular, and optical systems.
