Complex media have fascinating transport properties. They constitute a challenge in present science since recently discovered light-matter bound states may for the first time be computed using modern hardware as well as novel theoretical methods and numerics. As quantitative research moves more and more into our focus, the quantum and the ultra-fast non-equilibrium regime become accessible, and theoreticians and experimentalists can work hand in hand. Our event addresses rapidly developing physical concepts, photonics and polaritonics, united within the topic of the propagation of light.
This workshop appeals to students, early career scientists and experienced researchers in the field of light-matter interaction and photonics – experimentalists as well as theoreticians. We are fortunate to be able to bring together an international line-up of speakers in order to enhance discussion across the disciplines and the stages of experience. Our list of invited speakers is chosen such that the highest possible number of active research fields can be addressed in the 45-minute talks, which are accompanied by a large number of posters as well as oral contributions. Each participant is highly encouraged to contribute with his/her own submission.
