The first international conference on quantum metamaterials

The first international conference on quantum metamaterial, co-organized by Dr. Alex Zagoskin, took place in Spetses, Greece 1-5 June 2015.

Quantum Metamaterials 2015 Workshop is the first international conference on quantum metamaterials – a fast developing field of quantum technology, which was initiated by Loughborough physicists Alex Zagoskin and Sergey Saveliev and their colleagues from RIKEN and by now led to the creation of first quantum metamaterial prototypes. It brought together around fifty representatives of the leading quantum research centres from UK, EU, USA, Japan and Russia. Besides research talks there were two tutorials on quantum engineering of quantum metamaterials (by Alex Zagoskin) and their experimental fabrication (by Alexei Ustinov).
