The Rochester Conferences on Coherence and Quantum Optics (CQO) have been held every six years since their inception in 1960, essentially coincident with the first observation of lasing. The Quantum Information and Measurement (QIM) meeting was initiated last year by the Optical Society to cover many of the exciting developments in quantum information and quantum measurement. The conferences will be held during the week of June 17-20, 2013 and will be held on the campus of the University of Rochester with housing available both off-campus and in the University of Rochester dormitories. These conferences bring together the leaders in theoretical and experimental coherence, quantum optics, quantum information and quantum measurement from throughout the world to review the progress of the field and to coalesce ideas about future directions. Through a series of tutorials, historical reviews, invited papers, and poster sessions, a perspective is provided on the research in the field for the past few years as well as highlighting the latest developments.
The CQO conferences are truly international and have brought together leading researchers from around the world. For example, Nobel laureate Edward Purcell, along with other pioneers in the field including R. Hanbury Brown, and S. Pancharatnam, attended the first conference in June 1960. In the following conferences attendees have included Nobel laureates Willis Lamb, Arthur Schawlow, Nicholas Bloembergen, Roy Glauber, Claude• Cohen-Tannoudji, William Phillips, Wolfgang Ketterle and Serge Haroche.
General topics of interest include all aspects of experimental and theoretical coherence, quantum optics, quantum information and quantum measurement. A special historical symposium will be presented on the Jaynes-Cummings model and a joint-meeting symposium will be held on weak values.
The CQO-10 topics will include: cavity quantum electrodynamics, artificial atoms, optomechanics, non-classical states, topological quantum states, foundations of quantum coherence, Casimir effect, quantum simulation, entanglement, weak measurement, ultra-cold gases, singular optics, orbital angular momentum.
The QIM meeting will cover topics of quantum metrology, entanglement, quantum memories, quantum key distribution, quantum computing, and quantum control.
