The tremendous surge in activity in recent years to control mechanical oscillators at the quantum limit by coupling to electromagnetic modes of a cavity now spans the range from very small (atomic quantum gases) to very large (LIGO mirrors). The long-standing goal of ground state cooling of mechanical oscillators has now been achieved in several systems.

The focus of the ITAMP workshop will be to address the question: where do we go from here? We anticipate lively discussions exploring the open challenges and opportunities at the interface of atomic, optical, quantum information, condensed-matter and gravitational physics.

If you are interested in bringing a poster there are a limited amount of poster spaces available in the meeting room. Poster discussions will take place during the breaks. Please email Lisa at lbastille @ cfa.harvard.edu.
