Description

Okinawa School in Physics: Coherent Quantum Dynamics 
(物理スクールおきなわ:コヒーレント量子ダイナミックス)

The study of quantum coherent dynamics is currently one of the most active and exciting areas in physics. It holds the promise for the development of new technologies (quantum computing, quantum metrology,...) and, at the same time, has already delivered insights into the foundations of quantum mechanics. Its fast moving pace and new approach has attracted many young researchers and summer schools - at which leading experts share their knowledge and directly interact with the participants - have become an integral part of the community.

The school will consist of lectures delivered by Japanese and international experts on the fundamentals of the area.  This will be supplemented by accessible presentations (colloquia) on cutting-edge research problems.  All participants will present a poster based on their current research and presentation training is also provided. 

This year the school is co-funded by the CSTI ImPACT program, one of whose aims is research towards quantum artificial brains and quantum simulations [link here]. Information about the program will be available at the school.
