Plenary Speakers

Prof. Gershon Kurizki
Title: Quantum Noise Sensing by Nonlinear Interferometry
Gershon Kurizki holds the G.W. Dunne Professorial Chair in Quantum Optics at the Weizmann Institute of Science. He is one of the theoretical pioneers of the fields of quantum open-system control and thermodynamics. He discovered the Anti-Zeno Effect in open quantum systems and found the connection between quantum thermodynamics and the quantum Zeno and anti-Zeno effects, proposed a challenge to the unattainability of the absolute zero in quantum systems and introduced fundamental models of quantum heat machines. He has also made numerous important contributions to the theory of quantum measurements and quantum optics.

He won the Lamb Award in 2008 and the Humboldt-Meitner Award in 2009 for his discovery of the anti-Zeno effect and his pioneering contributions to the theory of quantum measurements and decoherence control in open quantum systems. Kurizki is Fellow of the American Physical Society, the Optical Society of America and the British Institute of Physics. His current h-index is 60 and he has over 300 publications, over 60 of them in high-profile journals, with nearly 13000 citations. He has written two books, one published by Oxford University Press in 2020, the other by Cambridge University Press in 2022.
Prof. Kenan Gundogdu
North Carolina State University, USA
Title: High Temperature Quantum Materials " A Path to Quantum Technologies"
Professor Gundogdu got his BS degree in Physics at Bogazici University in Turkey in 1999. He completed his PhD at the University of Iowa Physics Department. His first postdoctoral position was in the University of Iowa Chemistry Department and the second one was in Massachusetts Institute of Technology Chemistry Department. At 2008 Professor Gundogdu joined the NC State University physics department. His studies optical and electronic processes in condensed matter using ultrafast and nonlinear optical spectroscopy. His current research focuses on quantum coherence and room temperature quantum materials.
Prof. Norbert Kroo
Title: Laser excited high field plasmonics for nuclear fusion
Prof. Dr. Norbert Kroo, Past Secretary General and Vice-President of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences (HAS), and member of the Scientific Council of the European Research Council, was founding director of the Research Institute for Solid State Physics and Optics of HAS. He is Honoris Causa Professor Doctor of the Roland Eotvos University (H).He worked in several countries, and with outstanding scientist like Herbert Walter and Alexander Prokhorov. He is the former president of the European Physical Society and member, honorary member or doctor of several distinguished scientific institutions and universities. [Academia Europaea (Chair of the Physics and Engineering Section), Spanish Royal Academy, Jordanian Royal Scientific Society, European Academy of Science and Arts, Euroscience, etc.]. He has received awards from many states and their academies. His latest decorations are: the Alexander von Humboldt Research Prize (D), the Wallis E. Lamb Award for Laser Physics and Quantum Electronics (USA), the Commander of the Order of the Lion Award (Finland),The Middle Cross with the Star (H), the Charles Hard Townes Distinguished Lecterer Award (USA) and the Hungarian Prima Primissima Prize for Science. He is Honorary Member of the European Physical Society and the Institute of Physics (UK). He was member of the High Level Expert Group on Digital Libraries (EU) and the European Research Advisory Board, Chair of the Research Infrastructure Expert Group of the EU, the European Science Foundation and Hungary. He served for 10 years as founding member of the European Research Council being member of it’s Scientific Council. In 2016 he was elected as the best scientific popularizer of science in Hungary and a small planet has been named after him.

His research fields: solid state physics, neutron physics, laser physics and quantum optics, plasmonics. He has published more than 330 scientific papers, and is the owner of 42 patents.
