Rochester Conferences on Coherence and Quantum Optics – 11

The Rochester Conferences on Coherence and Quantum Optics (CQO) have been held every six years since their inception in 1960, essentially coincident with the first observation of lasing. Topics of interest include all aspects of experimental and theoretical coherence, quantum optics, quantum information and quantum measurement. Past CQO conferences have brought together leading researchers from…
