Towards Dipolar Physics with Ultracold Molecules

Dipolar Physics with Ultracold Molecules is a workshop which will bring together few-body and many-body theorists and experimentalists from the dipolar quantum gas community in order to address the key challenges facing the field of ultracold molecules, with a particular focus on quantum simulation of many-body physics problems. It will take place from 18-20 November 2019 at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Durham, UK.

Topics include molecular collisions, quantum state control, quantum simulation with dipolar gases, quantum gas microscopy, direct laser cooling of molecules, and molecular assembly.
