Vienna, 14 – 15 May 2015, “Levitation in (quantum) Physics,” by Prof. Markus Aspelmeyer
“Levitation in (quantum) physics: a new tool for addressing foundational questions”
The workshop took place at the University of Vienna (Austria) on May 14 – 15, 2015.
The goal of the workshop was to introduce the ITN cQOM students to the current foundational questions in quantum physics, guided by the methodology and prospects of cavity quantum optomechanics. A particular focus was on macroscopic quantum physics, non-equilibirum statistical physics, quantum thermodynamics and the gravity-quantum interface.
All lectures combined tutorial style introductions with insight into state-of-the art research.
