Frontiers in Quantum NanoScience: a Sir Mark Oliphant Conference

Noosa 22/01/2006 - 26/01/2006

Nanoscience and Nanotechnology receive much attention in the media today. However almost all current work concentrates on very small scale classical devices. This conference looks ahead to the far more revolutionary developments expected once nanoscience 'goes quantum', and begins to use the full potential of quantum mechanical superposition, phase coherence, and entanglement.

The conference is organised jointly by the University of Queensland and the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada. The conference is sponsored by the Sir Mark Oliphant Conference Series of The Australian Academy of Science, Pacific Institute for Theoretical Physics and the University of Queensland.
