Lorentz Center Workshop on Ultracold Quantum Sensing, 17 – 21 April,Leiden, The Netherland.

Lorentz Center Workshop on Ultracold Quantum Sensing, which will take place in Leiden, The Netherlands, 17 – 21 April. To apply, register your interest using this link till the deadline of February 5.

The goal of this workshop is to stimulate discussions of ultracold quantum sensors and their applications, between researchers, industry and potential users. We strive to help guide the development of quantum sensors along the most fruitful paths. The workshop focuses on four topics:

  • Optical clocks
  • Atom interferometry and continuous atomic sources
  • Science with ultracold quantum sensors
  • Industry ultracold quantum sensors and their applications

Confirmed invited speakers:

  • Philippe Bouyer
  • Klemens Hammerer
  • Wolf von Klitzing
  • Thomas Legero
  • Tanja Mehlstäubler
  • Eamonn Murphy
  • Nicola Poli
  • Ernst Rasel
  • Yevgeny Stadnik
  • Jürgen Stuhler
  • James Thompson
  • Wim Ubachs

We have 25 places for participants that would like to contribute to discussions and that will have the possibility to present a poster. In addition a few speaker slots remain to be distributed. The organizing committee will distribute these places shortly after Feb 5. If your application is accepted you can apply for travel and hotel cost support. The exact amount of support will be determined in dependence of available funding and the number of participants in need of support.

FIRST-TF Call for projects 2023 is now open; deadline for applications March 13, 2023

The FIRST-TF 2023 Call for Projects is now open. The deadline for submitting applications is March 13, 2023.

This call for projects aims to support teams from the FIRST-TF network on ambitious projects (research projects, projects in partnership with companies, training projects or dissemination of knowledge to the public) and to strengthen collaborations between its members, on themes focused on Time and Frequency metrology, its interfaces and its applications.

This year, the support provided by FIRST-TF may focus on:

• staff (financing of young researcher fixed-term contracts, engineering or technician fixed-term contracts, doctoral mission, no theses funded this year);

• Research / Service / Training equipment (material, components, instrumentation, etc.) including co-financing of medium-heavy equipment;

• operation (missions, invitations to researchers, organization of workshops or conferences, etc.).
