The "Cold and controlled molecules and ions (CCMI)" conference will bring together scientists from atomic and molecular physics, cold chemistry, quantum optics and few- and many-body quantum physics who all share an interest in cold and controlled molecules and ions. The meeting is devoted to highlighting the theoretical ideas and the experimental methods for producing and utilizing cold and ultracold molecules.

The following topics will be covered:

  • Cold controlled collisions
  • Cold and ultracold chemistry
  • Quantum simulation with ultracold molecules
  • High-precision spectroscopy with ultracold molecules
  • Molecular control and alignment
  • Frequency combs for spectroscopy and dynamics of cold molecules
  • Spectroscopy and dynamics of molecules in helium droplets and para-H2
  • Spectroscopy of cold ions in cryogenic traps
  • Ultracold polyatomic molecules

This is the third in a series of conferences that is scheduled to run biannually. The previous CCMI conferences were held in Rehovot, Israel in March 2016 and Monte Verita, Switzerland in September 2014.
