International Conference on Electron Beam Shaping in Space and Time

28-30 May 2018, Forschungszentrum Jülich

On 28-30 May 2018, Forschungszentrum Jülich will host the Q-SORT International Conference on Electron Beam Shaping in Space and Time. The conference aims to address challenges and opportunities in electron beam shaping and its applications. It will showcase cutting-edge theoretical and experimental developments in the form of invited plenary talks and contributed presentations and include space for product displays. There will be opportunities for networking and discussion, as well as an edit-a-thon, an interdisciplinary workshop and a webinar. Topics sought for the programme include (but are not limited to):

  • Coherent manipulation of electron wavefunctions by light interaction and matter, possibly inspired by recent progress in light (quantum) optics, to produce functional electron waveforms.
  • Studies of the foundational aspects of quantum physics and their applications to materials science.
  • Ideas and methods for near-interaction-free and dose-effective imaging of matter.

The event will be constituted of selected top-level proposals. Demo and poster sessions will also be organized.

The conference will bring together leading institutions in the field of electron microscopy and quantum light optics, i.e. CNR-NANO, Forschungszentrum Jülich, Technion, Tel-Aviv University, Thermo Fisher Scientific, The Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light, University of Glasgow, University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, Maastricht University, University of Ottawa. Representatives from the European Commission, Wikimedia, and the creative industries will also be in attendance.

The event is organised jointly by the Quantum Sorter - a new Measurement Paradigm in Electron Microscopy (H2020-FETOPEN) and Science and Applications of Electron Wavefunctions Shaped and Manipulated by Engineered Nanoholograms (Deutsch-Israelische Projektkooperation grant) with the support of Forschungszentrum Jülich and Institute Nanoscience CNR (CNR-NANO).
