  • Advanced Workshop on Landau-Zener Interferometry and Quantum Control in Condensed Matter


    The workshop will address recent developments on Landau-Zener dynamics and related quantum control in complex systems including (but not limited to) many body effects in ultracold gases, dissipative Landau-Zener transitions, Landau-Zener interferometry in superconducting qubits, double and triple quantum dots, spin & charge qubits, N-V centers and nano-mechanical systems.

    The central idea of this workshop is to bring together various condensed matter communities, dealing with complex systems, where the nonequilibrium dynamics at avoided crossings is (other than in pure atomic systems) highly influenced by many body interactions and, in many cases, environmental fluctuations. We expect about 80 participants including about 25 invited presentations given by the world experts in order to exchange ideas and shape new links beyond the traditional community boundaries. We hope to facilitate Landau-Zener interferometry and quantum control as one of the key spectroscopic tools in condensed matter systems for the future
