XII International Conference on Quantum Optics and Quantum Information

September 20–23, 2008, Vilnius, LITHUANIA

XII International Conference on Quantum Optics and Quantum Information organized by Lithuanian Physical Society, Belarussian Physical Society, Lithuanian Academy of Sciences and National Academy of Sciences of Belarus will be held on September 20-23, 2008, in the conference center of the "Reval Hotel Lietuva" located in the city of Vilnius.

General idea of the conference is to bring together scientists and engineers from different fields (optics, atomic and molecular physics, solid state physics, computer science) which actively contribute to the field of Quantum Optics and Quantum information.

The traditional style for this Conference is the oral presentations followed by rather informal discussions, with one of conference evenings being usually devoted to the poster session. This International Conference will be the next one of a series of very successful meetings that were held in Minsk during the last 20 years in 1986, 1988, 1990, 1992, 1994, 1996, 1998, 2000, 2002, 2004, 2006.

If you have joint projects with quantum optics and quantum information scientists in the FSU or plan to start such an activity, it is a good chance to choose this event for your local meeting with colleagues.

The main topics include

  • Materials and devices for Quantum Optics and Quantum Information:
  • nanophotonics
  • spintronics
  • strong optical nonlinearities
  • laser sources for quantum cryptography, including single photon sources and ultrashort lasers
  • single photon detectors
  • single quantum objects (molecules, atoms, solid state impurities, quantum dots, electrons, electron and nuclear spins): detection, control and manipulation
  • novel ultrafine processing techniques for QO and QI
  • Fiber-based and free-space QKD systems
  • Traditional Quantum optics problems, quantum imaging
  • Entanglement
  • characterization, creation and detection
  • entanglement in many bodies systems
  • metrology using entanglement
  • Building hardware for scalable quantum computers
  • trapped ions
