International workshop “Quantum Materials and Structured Light” (QMSL) 2024

The international workshop on “Quantum Materials and Structured Light” will take place from July 6 to 12, 2024 in Erice (Sicily), Italy. The aim of the workshop is to bring together scientists, engineers and students from different interacting disciplines dealing with photonics, quantum materials and designer light. The workshop will be held at the historic Ettore Majorana Centre for Scientific Culture. In addition to contributed talks and posters, we are planning invited tutorial-style lectures to provide a good opportunity for researchers and students not only to present their research but also to learn about the broad field of photonics. Invited talks will be given by leading scientists on the following topics: 

  • Quantum materials
  • Quantum photonic technologies
  • Light-matter interaction at the nanoscale
  • Near-field optics
  • Mid-infrared and terahertz nano-photonics and quantum devices
  • Plasmonics with semiconductors and other materials
  • Metasurfaces and flat optics
  • Polariton optics
  • Structured light and singular optics
  • Topological photonics

The workshop will be an in-person only event.

Organizer: CNR Istituto Nanoscienze

Venue: Ettore Majorana Foundation and Centre for Scientific Culture, Erice, Italy
