Workshop Details
Emerging Phenomena in the Strong Light-Matter Coupling Regime (in-person participation)
06/10/2024 - 06/14/2024
Meeting Description:

Modern quantum technology has pushed the light-matter interaction strength to the strong, or even ultra-strong coupling regime, which has been successfully demonstrated in experimental platforms including intense laser systems, superconducting qubits, optomechanical systems, NV centers, cold atoms in optical lattices, and optical or plasmonic cavities. The strong light-matter coupling not only offers unprecedented opportunities for creating and controlling novel quantum states, but also presents new challenges: how to discover, interpret, and predict emerging phenomena unique in this regime.

The purpose of this workshop is to bring together leading researchers from chemistry, physics, materials sciences, quantum optics and quantum technology to discuss recent advances in strong light-matter interactions, with a particular focus on issues that are at the interface between experiment and theory. This workshop is intended to provide a unique platform for researchers to exchange ideas on the frontiers of this research area and facilitate collaborations between theorists and experimentalists from diverse backgrounds.

Selected Topics
Floquet engineer/ quantum control
cavity QED
polariton condensates
quantum light/quantum optics /photon statistics


We wish to ensure an intimate workshop setting, with no more than 20 to 25 participants. If you are interested in attending, but have not received an invitation, please contact the workshop organizer before registering.

Telluride Science is about expanding the frontiers of science, exploring new ideas, and building collaborations. The workshop schedule will allow for substantial unstructured time for participants to talk and think. All participants are expected to stay for the entire duration of the workshop. Scientists are encouraged to consider bringing family or friends. Telluride offers a number of options for children's camps (including Telluride Academy, Aha School for the Arts, and Pinhead Institute). There is more information on childcare, camps, and family activities on Telluride Science's website. Feel free to contact Telluride Science's staff to help with any planning and/or coordinating care.
