Welcome to the Workshop on Ultracold Rydberg Physics - A Humboldt Kolleg within the Brazilian-German Year of Science, Technology and Innovation 2010/2011.
This conference is aimed at understanding the many aspects of Rydberg atom systems. The study of Rydberg atoms is experiencing a rennaisance due to the many recent advances made in this research area, such as the progress towards making quantum gates, the observations of new and exotic types of molecules, the investigation of plasmas and study of manybody dynamics. Of central interest is controlling the interactions between Rydberg atoms so that they may be enginered to make new devices based on quantum entanglement or used to investigate phenomena that can be better understood by taking advantage of this control.
The workshop will be held at Atlante Plaza hotel located at the Boa Viagem Beach in Recife, Brazil. The workshop will start on November 28 and it will take place over 3 days. There will be both invited and contributed talks in addition to a poster session. Students are particularly welcome to attend this conference. Students should enquire about support.
