    Andrei Derevianko

    Andrei Derevianko is teaching quantum physics and related subjects at the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR). He has authored over 100 refereed publications in theoretical physics. He is a fellow of the American Physical Society, Simons fellow in theoretical physics, and a Fulbright scholar.  Among a variety of research topics, he has contributed to the development of several novel classes of atomic clocks and precision tests of fundamental symmetries with atoms and molecules. Recent interests include detection of ultralight dark matter with GPS. Upon graduating from FizTech, he was involved with a computer startup in Moscow and then moved to the United States. He earned his Ph.D. at Auburn and did…

    FOMO2022 Speaker (Invited),  Holger Müller

    Holger Müller

    Holger Mueller has been advancing the physics of matter waves to probe nature at the utmost sensitivity. Examples are atom interferometry to measure gravity and the fine structure constant, phase-contrast electron microscopy, and optical recording of biological signals. He is a member of the Berkeley Physics Department, of Berkeley’s quantitative biology center QB3 as well as a faculty scientist at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory LBNL.

    Invited Talk: Matter-Waves lensing in Dynamic Wave-Guides

    Giannis Drougakis1,Saurabh Pandey1,2,4, Hector Mas1,3,5, Vishnupriya Puthiya Veettil1,  Georgios Vasilakis1, and Wolf von Klitzing1,†  Institute of Electronic Structure and Laser, Foundation for Research and Technology-Hellas, Heraklion 70013, Greece Department of Materials Science and Technology, University of Crete, Heraklion 70013, Greece Department of Physics, University of Crete, Heraklion 70013, Greece  Physics Division, Los Alamos National Laboratory, Los Alamos, New Mexico 87545, USA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, California 91109, USA  Mattewaves are promising candidates for the realization of extremely sensitive sensors. Some of the most sensitive and precise measurements to date of gravity[1],  inertia[2],  and rotation[3]  are based on matter-wave interferometry with free-falling atomic clouds. A critical requirement to achieve very high…

    Anton Zeilinger,  FOMO2022 Speaker (Invited),  People of FOMO

    Anton Zeilinger

    Anton Zeilinger, born in 1945 in Austria, received his PhD from the University of Vienna in 1971. After a postdoctoral position with Helmut Rauch, one of the pioneers of neutron interferometry, at the Technical University of Vienna, Zeilinger joined the Neutron Diffraction Laboratory at MIT under Clifford G. Shull (Nobel Prize 1994). He held visiting appointments at Institut Laue-Langevin Grenoble, Collège de France, Oxford University, Technical University Munich and Humboldt University Berlin. In 1990, he became Chair of Experimental Physics at the University of Innsbruck and in 1999 Chair of Experimental Physics at the University of Vienna. He is presently Professor Emeritus at the University of Vienna and Senior Scientist…

  • Baptiste Batellier,  FOMO2022 Speaker (Invited)

    Baptiste Batellier

    Working at Institut d’Optique in Bordeaux (France), Baptiste Battelier oversees experimental activities in microgravity to support the development of atom interferometry for future Space missions. In parallel he leads a joint laboratory with the French industrial iXblue to develop cold atom sensors for inertial navigation and onboard gravimetry.
