Welcome to the CCQ-NYU Light-Matter Seminar Series


This monthly seminar series focuses on various aspects of light-matter interaction, including polaritonics, quantum optics, material science, and quantum information science. Meetings are held in person, alternating between the Center for Computational Quantum Physics (CCQ) at the Flatiron Institute and the Simons Center for Computational Physical Chemistry at New York University. The series aims to strengthen and connect the light-matter community in and around NYC. These informal gatherings encourage speakers to share insights into their current projects, discuss open questions, and explore challenges. Lunch will be served after each seminar, providing an opportunity for networking and fostering connections within the NYC light-matter community.
