Welcome to the symposium Light at the Nanoscale: from Molecules to Quantum Computer, which will take place at Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden on Dec 5-6, 2019.
This cross-disciplinary meeting on light-matter interactions will gather prominent scientists in the field. In addition to researchers and university students, about 200 high school students will attend the symposium.The symposium is co-organized by the Nano Excellence Initiative and Materials Science Area of Advance at Chalmers, and Molecular Frontiers.
The symposium will be preceded on Dec 4 by the annual materials science conference at Chalmers, Materials for Tomorrow, thus forming a three-day event with many interesting lectures and discussions.is free of charge, and we will welcome poster contributions. Registration will open shortly./p>
