Quantum Information and Measurement (QIM)

18 - 20 3月 2014
Messe Berlin, Berlin, Germany
Quantum Information and Measurement (QIM)

The 2014 OSA QIM meeting took place 18 - 20 March in Berlin, Germany. For information about future QIM meetings, email info@osa.org.

Quantum information is an exciting, rapidly growing area of scientific interest and development, attracting cutting-edge theoretical and experimental research worldwide. Its rapid development gave birth to a number of novel quantum applications that provide exciting perspective and opens new horizons in many areas of measurement and technology. Optical methods play a key role in many implementations of quantum information and quantum technology.

The conference topics will cover theoretical development and experimental implementation of qubits and quantum gates using all kinds of physical systems, optical, semiconductor, atomic, superconducting, and hybrid environments. Special emphasis will be given to novel ideas targeting quantum information techniques and applications such as quantum metrology and sensors, quantum communication and networking, quantum memories and routers, quantum imaging, etc.
