Workshop on coherent light-matter interaction

We have decided to use Dieter Suter’s vist as an excuse to orangise a get together of local groups interested the interaction between light and atoms or atom-like objects.

Quantum Science Otago is kindly funding the workshop.


The workshop will be held on Monday 28th of September
