International physics conference to discuss latest breakthroughs

An international physics conference to be held at Swansea University is to bring together prize winning scientists who will discuss recent research and breakthroughs.

The four day International Conference on Quantum, Atomic, Molecular and Plasma Physics (QuAMP), which is the première UK conference devoted to these areas of Physics, will start next Monday (9 September) at the University.

The conference will feature speakers from the University of Ottawa, AarhusUniversity, University of Innsbruck, Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena and GSI, University of Basel, Imperial College London, Queens University Belfast and OxfordUniversity.

As well as 25 contributed talks, the conference delegation will hear from 15 invited speakers on a range of subjects including:-

  • Ultra-cold matter
  • Quantum optics
  • Quantum information and computing
  • Plasma physics
  • Atomic and molecular systems - interactions and physics
  • Ultra-fast phenomena
  • Metrology
  • Antimatter physics

Professor Mike Charlton said: “This conference will bring together leading physicists from around the world and to mark the event we will be awarding one of our speakers an Institute of Physics prize – Professor Jeremy O’Brien of the University of Bristol will receive the Bates Prize for his outstanding research in experimental quantum optics and quantum information science.”
