Event details

We are pleased to announce a two-day workshop on Non-Equilibrium Processes at Negative Temperature, to be held at Strathclyde on 23-24 October 2014 and supported by the EPSRC Network+ "Emergence and Physics far from Equilibrium".

The aim of the meeting is to address the importance of negative temperature states in non-equilibrium systems and their role in UK and international research in Atomic, Quantum and Laser Physics. We are bringing together researchers from many different areas and have assembled an exciting list of internationally recognised speakers:

  • Andrew Daley (Strathclyde, UK)
  • Martin Evans (Edinburgh, UK)
  • Magnus Johansson, (Linkoping, Sweden)
  • Roberto Livi (Florence, Italy)
  • Allard Mosk (Twente, The Netherlands)
  • Alessia Pasquazi (Sussex, UK)
  • Antonio Picozzi (Dijon, France)
  • Paolo Politi (CNR-ISC, Florence, Italy)
  • Benno Rumpf (Southern Methodist, Dallas, USA)
  • Ulrich Schneider (Max Planck Institute, Garching, Germany)

These speakers will give talks that not only discuss recent results, but also highlight open questions and opportunities in their respective domains.

We hope to have a lively meeting that will also include time spent on group discussions, round tables, short presentations from attending scientists and feedback sessions. We would be delighted to see you at the workshop!
