Recent Advances in Quantum Metrology
02-04 March 2016, Warsaw, Poland

About

The Workshop organized with the support of the PhoQuS project focuses on recent fascinating developments in quantum metrology in order to understand various ways in which one can benefit from intrinsic quantum features of matter and light in practical metrogical protocols and get a better feeling of the present development and future prospects of the field. The Workshop will be held in the CENT I building (Banacha 2c) which is just next to the Faculty of Physics, University of Warsaw new building (Pasteura 5). After entering the building you will find the registration desk on the right in the cloak-room. Lectures will take place in room 1130 to which you get by walking straight and climbing the spiral stairs.

Main topics:

  • Entanglement enhanced atomic clocks
  • Atomic interferometry
  • Optical interferometry utilizing non-classical states of light
  • Quantum-enhanced imaging
  • Impact of decoherence on quantum metrological protocols
  • New theoretical methods of quantum estimation theory
