Matter waves – VDSP Summer Academy 2023

The Vienna Doctoral School in Physics is organizing a summer academy on matter wave science and technology to celebrate the centenary of Louis de Broglie’s idea that all material particles must also be regarded as quantum waves. 

Organizers would like to invite you to participate in the VDSP Summer Academy on Matter Waves A comprehensive introduction: from electrons, over atoms and molecules to nanoparticles, at University of Vienna, Austria (17 – 28 July 2023)

Lecturers: Markus Arndt, Philipp Haslinger, Thomas Juffmann

Target Audience: Advanced bachelor and master students who consider doing research in this field

In 2023 we are going to celebrate the centenary of Louis de Broglie’s revolutionary idea that all massive matter must be described by quantum waves. This idea inspired Erwin Schrödinger to formulate his wave equation and it is at the heart of matter-wave research with systems as diverse as electrons, neutrons, atoms, degenerate atomic clouds, molecules, clusters, and nanoparticles.

Modern matter-wave physics addresses the foundations of physics as well as applications in inertial sensing, precision measurement, quantum imaging, quantum measurement, and the explorations of the interface of quantum physics with gravity theory, chemistry, or biology.

The VDSP Summer Academy wants to celebrate these achievements by introducing advanced bachelor and master students from all over the world to this timely topic.

There are no registration fees.

A limited travel support is offered to a subset of students. The number of participants is limited to 60 students.

Application Deadline: FRI 28 April 2023, 23:59 CET
