Triggered by the rapid advance of experimental techniques in quantum optics and the development of the field of quantum technology, the underlying question of the interpretation of quantum mechanics has recently received a lot of attention again.
This “Enrico Fermi” Summer School provides an overview of recent theoretical and experimental developments of the foundations of quantum mechanics to students, post-docs and scientists interested in this field.
The International School of Physics “Enrico Fermi”, one of the most significant cultural activities of the Italian Physical Society, was founded in 1953 by the president at that time, Giovanni Polvani.
The “Second Conference of Fermi Centre Projects” took place on 19-20 April this year in Rome, Italy, in the temporary headquarters of the Museo Storico della Fisica e Centro Studi e Ricerche “Enrico Fermi”, which is presently located on the premises of the Italian Ministry of the Interior.
The conference focused on the presentation of the results and perspectives of the advanced inter- and multi-disciplinary research projects currently underway at the center. About 250 scientists, researchers and professors…
