Light at the Nanoscale: from Molecules to Quantum Computers

​Welcome to a cross-disciplinary symposium on light-matter interactions, organized jointly by Molecular Frontiers, the Nano Excellence Initiative and the Materials Science Area of Advance. On Dec 5-6, ten outstanding plenary speakers, including Nobel laureate Stefan Hell, will give presentations and take part in panel discussions in RunAn. 
​The symposium will be preceded by Materials for Tomorrow on Dec 4.​
More information, and link to registration form for both conferences, can be found on the symposium homepage.
