A day in July/August 2017
Department of Physics, University of Warwick
Organiser: J. Lloyd-Hughes, R.A. Römer (Physics, Warwick), A. Punnoose (City College New York)
Optical beams, besides carrying energy and linear momentum, have been identified to carry a finite angular momentum on top of the well-known elementary polarization state. The large number of extra degrees of freedom are encoded in the complex phase structure of the beam. The demonstration that the additional angular momentum is carried by the individual photons greatly increases the information carrying capabilities per photon. Understanding the quantum mechanical degrees of freedom of complex light is therefore a necessary step to study light-matter interactions and quantum information processing at the single photon level. This workshop brings together academics to discuss recent research on the quantum nature of complex light.

Participation is by invitation only. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you think this workshop looks as if it would be of interest to you. Normally, we would be happy to accept self-invitations, but will not be able to pay for any expenses in this case.
The symposium will start at 09:00 a.m. on 13th June 2013, at the University of Warwick. Note that the university is located at the outskirts of Coventry and not in Warwick. See http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/about/visiting/ for travel details and http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/about/visiting/maps/ for maps of the central campus. In case you come by car, parking is available for delegates at car park 15.
This list of participants is accurate as of 24.05.2013.

All talks will be held in the Physics Lecture Theatre (PLT) on the third floor of the Physics Building. Registration will be held on the Physics Concourse outside the PLT. Physics is building 48 on the campus map.
The workshop will start with the registration at the University of Warwick. Note that the university is located at the outskirts of Coventry city and not in the town of Warwick.
