SYMPOSIUM: The Casimir Effect: Where Chemistry and Biology meet Quantum Technology

BELGRADE 29th October 2020 / Institute of General and Physical Chemistry, Studentski trg 12/V, University of Belgrade

VIRTUAL MEETUP on quantum technologies 

The SYMPOSIUM gathers experts from different fields such as quantum optics, the foundation of physics, nanophotonics, plasmonics, biophotonics, nonlinear optics, and nanolithography, to highlight from different viewpoints, the new and perspective research in the field of quantum technology at the dawn of the second quantum revolution. The invited speakers are renowned scientists in their respective fields and will talk about the different aspects of light-matter interaction and control of intermolecular forces using the light and structuring of matter at the nanoscale.
