Frontiers of Quantum and Mesoscopic Thermodynamics 2013
Venue: Orea Hotel Pyramida
|Event Date/Time: Jul 28, 2013||End Date/Time: Aug 03, 2013|
The aim of FQMT'13 is to create a bridge between the fields of modern condensed matter physics, quantum optics and statistical physics and the quickly developing field of foundations of quantum physics.
The conference will address the foundations of quantum physics and non-equilibrium quantum 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 better understanding of the behavior of mesoscopic systems, and to provide insight into the recent problems of the foundations, relying on the theoretical and experimental methods of condensed matter physics and quantum optics. Special attention will be given to problems of measurement of non-equilibrium quantum systems, physics of quantum information and biological systems, in terms of both theory and experiment. Subjects from astrophysics, gravitation or cosmology related to the above scope will be included.
The interdisciplinary character of the conference will be supported by choice of key speakers who, apart from their specializations, are not only able to report specific results within their fields, but are also able to discuss the state of the art of their fields from the standpoint of broader perspective of overlaps with other fields.
