CLEO QELS - Fundamental Science

CLEO: QELS – Fundamental Science is a descendent of the Quantum Electronics and Laser Science Conference (QELS), which has been traditionally collocated with CLEO.

QELS has long been a leading venue for presenting the newest research results in physics-related areas of optics, modern spectroscopy, atomic and molecular manipulation and control, quantum optics, optical materials, interactions of electromagnetic radiation with matter, ultrafast phenomena, and nonlinear optics. More recent additions include fields such as quantum information science, nanophotonics, and metamaterials.
