CMD26 – Condensed Matter in Groningen is an international conference covering all aspects of condensed matter physics. The meeting will be held from September 4th through September 9th, 2016, in the Martiniplaza Conference Centre in Groningen, The Netherlands. The scientific programme will consist of a series of plenary and semi-plenary talks and Mini-colloquia. Within each Mini-colloquium, there will be invited lectures, oral contributions and posters.
The Mini-Colloquium “Nanoscale Quantum Optics” highlights very recent developments at the interface of quantum optics and nanophotonics and is open to all contributions related to the light-matter interaction on a nano-scale where the quantum nature of matter matters. Particular emphasis lies on the following themes:
- Generation, detection and storage of quantum states of light at the nanoscale
(incl. single-photon detectors based, e.g., on superconducting nanostructures)
- Nonlinearities and ultrafast processes in nanostructured media
(incl. metamaterials and electrons in optical near-fields)
- Quantum plasmonics
- Quantum coherence and quantum entanglement (incl. quantum memories)
- Cooperative effects, correlations, and many-body physics in strongly confined fields.
