 Dates 26 Jan 2015 → 30 Jan 2015
[ID=644122] Go to top of page
 LocationInstitute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM),, United States
 Abstract Topological phases of matter are remarkable both for their richness of physical phenomena, and for their mathematical description by topological quantum field theories (TQFTs). Recently, the prediction and experimental discovery of topological insulators has spurred physicists to explore the role of symmetry in topological phases, leading to the identification of new classes of phases of matter, and new insights into their classification, properties, and potential physical realizations. This is an area with a history of strong connections between physics and mathematics, and the time is ripe for the emerging understanding of symmetric topological phases to benefit from new mathematical ideas in TQFTs, and vice versa. This interdisciplinary workshop will bring together theoretical physicists and mathematicians to discuss symmetric topological phases and TQFTs, with a goal of forging productive new interactions between these communities.

11.WQIT — Workshop on quantum information and thermodynamics
 Dates 23 Feb 2015 → 27 Feb 2015
[ID=629123] Go to top of page
 LocationSão 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.

 Topics Quantum Information, Thermodynamics, Quantum Thermodynamics, Thermodynamics of Small Systems

 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.

16.Gordon Research Conference — Spin Dynamics in Nanostructures 2015
 Dates 26 Jul 2015 → 31 Jul 2015
[ID=655669] Go to top of page
 LocationHong Kong, China
 Abstract Spintronics is a leading contender for future nano-scale, "beyond Moore", data storage, processing, and transmission technologies. In particular, magnetism-based spintronics has enormous largely unexplored potential given its two particular features: (i) the extreme robustness of the magnetic order parameter against elevated temperatures and nanoscale confinement, and, (ii) the power-efficient spin-torque manipulation of the magnetic order by electric currents. As researchers are probing deeper into the spin dynamics of nanostructures, new physics and associated functionalities are being discovered at a dazzling pace. The 2nd Gordon Research Conference and 1st Gordon Research Seminar on "Spin Dynamics in Nanostructures" will provide an important stage for the main players in the field (and those who want to joint them) to present and discuss new results and future plans, in theory, computation, simulation, and experiments. The conference will touch many issues of modern spintronics and magnetism that challenge conventional wisdom. Magnetism occurs in metals and insulators, in the form of ferro-, ferri- and antiferromagnetic ground states, all with specific dynamical properties. Elementary spin wave excitations (magnons) can be excited and controlled by external stimuli such as magnetic fields, heating, electric currents, light (photons) and sound (phonons). The magnetization field may contain topological defects such as domain walls, vortices, and skyrmions that are especially susceptible to perturbations. The spin-orbit interaction is an essential ingredient to access, excite and stabilize magnetic textures and their dynamics. As structures approach the nanometer scale, new challenges arise due to the increased role of internal interfaces and contacts to the outside world and novel emerging quantum effects. Moreover, studies on the femtosecond to picosecond time-scales provide insights into regimes which defy established wisdom. We invite starting and expert researchers from academia and industry with backgrounds in experiment, theory, and computation of magnetism, optics, mechanics, electronics and thermoelectrics to participate in these meetings. The goal of these meetings is to exchange ideas and to discuss the most recent progress and most challenging problems. Of special welcome are junior scientists working on or interested in the field.

 Abstract The conference will address the foundations of quantum physics, quantum many body physics, and non-equilibrium statistical physics. The systems considered will be mainly on the order of mesoscopic (nanoscale) size, and include those of both natural and artificial origin. The main goal of the conference is to contribute to a better understanding of the behavior of mesoscopic systems, and to provide insight into the problems of the foundations, relying on the theoretical and experimental methods of condensed matter physics and quantum optics. Special attention will be given to non-equilibrium quantum systems, physics of quantum information and manifestation of quantum effects in biological systems, in terms of both theory and experiment. Subjects from astrophysics, gravitation or cosmology related to the above scope will also be included.

[ID=655388] Go to top of page
 LocationSouth Hadley, United States
 Abstract Exploiting coherence properties of light together with quantum-mechanical matter interferences in order to steer a quantum system to a desired target or dynamical behavior lies at the heart of Quantum Control of Light and Matter. While original ideas were developed in the physical-chemistry community, the field of quantum control has grown well beyond its traditional boundaries, and we are witnessing a tremendous cross-fertilization to neighboring "quantum technologies" in terms of both experimental techniques and theoretical developments. Examples range from NMR and non-linear spectroscopy to ultra-cold quantum matter, and from atto-second science to high-fidelity quantum information processing, including quantum coherence and entanglement in complex systems. The goal of this conference is to bring together theorists and experimentalists pushing the frontiers of this diverse field. In particular, recent experimental and theoretical results will be discussed, including: - Coherent control of atomic, molecular and optical systems - Quantum control of open and complex quantum systems, optimal and robust quantum control techniques - Relevant ultrafast, multidimensional, and nonlinear techniques - Quantum control applications to quantum information and quantum metrology The conference program is designed to reflect the interdisciplinary nature of the field, with emphasis on emerging directions and perspectives for future developments. Poster sessions are an essential and traditionally very lively part of the Conference on Quantum Control of Light and Matter. Every participant is encouraged to present highlights from her or his most recent work, preferentially yet unpublished.
