[ID=553702] Go to top of page
 LocationIsaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences, , United Kingdom
 Abstract We are currently entering a new technological era in which we are able to build systems whose performance is limited by quantum physical effects and in which it may be possible to exploit non-classical phenomena in novel ways. To this end, there has been considerable recent interest in engineering quantum systems and at the heart of this is the development of a quantum control theory dedicated to extending classical control to the quantum domain. Examples already utilizing control of one sort or another include quantum electromechanical systems, quantum dots, cooper-pair boxes, superconducting interference devices, ion traps, as well as a large selection of optical devices. It is clear that a mathematical framework is essential for the future development of quantum control as an engineering discipline. The aim of the programme is to bring together experimentalists and theoreticians working in quantum engineering to identify the core mathematical issues and challenges ahead.

 Dates 01 Sep 2014 → 05 Sep 2014
[ID=634557] Go to top of page
 LocationBrasov, Romania
 Abstract Mesoscopic structures are between "not so few-" and "not too many-" body quantum systems. They exhibit specific finite size properties, like fluctuations, dissipative phenomena, collective excitations, superfluidity, shell and clustering effects, etc. The methods employed in the description of such systems try to match the few-body quantum mechanics from one side with the many-body techniques and thermodynamics from the other side. This conference is a good opportunity to discuss various aspects of mesoscopic physics, from nano-scale condensed matter physics to nuclear physics, in order to facilitate the exchange of ideas and theoretical techniques, as well as the interaction between theorists and experimentalists from important scientific institutions.

25.WQIT — Workshop on quantum information and thermodynamics
 Dates 23 Feb 2015 → 27 Feb 2015
[ID=629145] Go to top of page
 LocationSăo Paulo, Brazil
 Abstract Guided by the desire to help France win the Napoleonic Wars, Sadi Carnot gave birth to Thermodynamics. Although primarily focused on the efficiency of heat engines, such theory had developed into one of the principal pillars of modern physics. Even with the advent of relativity and quantum mechanics, the macroscopic laws of thermodynamics remained unchanged. Despite the fact that it is an old theory, thermodynamics is far from being a closed subject. Recently, we have witnessed the impressive increase in the research discussing the fundamentals of this theory, specially concerning small systems as well as dynamics far from equilibrium. The application of informational theoretic tools to the field had contribute a lot in order to increase our understand of the very basis of the theory, leading us to the extension of its laws to the quantum domain. How the macroscopic laws of thermodynamics emerge from the reversible quantum (and classical) dynamics? How to understand the thermalisation of a closed quantum systems? What are the relations between information, thermodynamics and quantum mechanics? How to investigate experimentally the thermodynamical behavior of small quantum systems?

The purpose of this workshop is to gather together several researchers to explore such questions, from the theoretical and experimental point of views.

 Abstract The aim is to study quantum control and dynamics of few-particle systems in an active collaborative effort between experimentalists and theorists, as well as between recognized senior researchers and young investigators. The activity is motivated by recent advances in the physics of ultrafast phenomena in the femto- and attosecond time scale - a regime within reach of novel light sources. New insights into fundamental many-body physics are expected when ultrafast atomic and solid-state processes can be monitored in real time.
