Quantum Dissipation: Progress and Perspectives, July 22-24, 2015

FRIAS Director Prof. Hermann Grabert, together with FRIAS Alumnus Prof. Michael Thorwart, is organizing a conference on “´Quantum Dissipation: Progress and Perspectives” from July 22-24, 2015. The conference intends to reflect the state-of-the-art of the theory of quantum dissipative systems and discuss challenges in view of new experimental techniques.

Quantum systems commonly interact with an environment giving rise to dissipation and fluctuations. In view of the regularity of these phenomena the theory of quantum dissipative systems has become increasingly important in a continuously growing range of fields, comprising quantum optics, chemical physics, nanophysics to name a few. Recently, we have seen advances in the understanding of the interplay between quantum dissipation and quantum entanglement, quantum information and computation, but likewise new insights in far from equilibrium fluctuations, non-Markovian effects, or driven quantum systems have emerged.


Date: July 22-24, 2015

Location: FRIAS, Alberstraße 19, Seminar Room

Registration required.
