Scope of the Conference
The phenomenon of deBroglie waves evolved from textbook experiments on the foundations of quantum mechanics to a new kind of optics based on matter waves. Today, this field extends from experiments about the wave-particle dualism and decoherence, over coherent optics, non-linear optics, quantum atom optics and optics in periodic media to precision measurements.
Tailoring waves of all kind of matter and generation of complex matter-waves promises to perpetuate the fascination of this field over the next decade. This conference aims to bring together high-ranking scientist sharing this fascination and working at the frontiers of matter wave optics. Space will also be allotted to hot and new topics in the field of matter wave optics.
FOMO-2018 will be held at the Orthodox Academy of Crete, which is located directly on the seafront, close to the city of Chania. The site offers state of the art conference facilites, and many bonuses, such as a price winning chef, and a distance of about 20m to the beach.
