The Center for Coherence and Quantum Optics (CCQO) is a collaboration of researchers from a range of disciplines across the University of Rochester. By pooling our skills and resources, we push the frontiers of the field of quantum and classical coherence to new areas. We also enable practical applications within the areas of optical science and optical engineering.
CQO-11 will be held at the University of Rochester August 4-8, 2019. Topics of interest include all aspects of experimental and theoretical coherence, quantum optics, quantum information and quantum measurement.
For 90 years physicists have known that incompatibly opposite properties are inherent in all elementary particles. Now Rochester researchers say they’ve resolved this weird and inescapable wave-particle duality.
Optical physics and quantum optics will have a profound effect on our daily lives in the decades to come, and two Rochester faculty are among the authors of a new survey of the biggest scientific challenges and questions in the field.
