5th International conference on
"Fundamental Physics Using Atoms
- Towards better understanding of our matter universe -"


  October 8 (Saturday) - 10 (Monday), 2011



  Lecture Hall (Faculty of Education), Okayama University, Tsushima Campus


 Conference objective:
Recently much effort has been directed to investigation of the fundamental physics by exploiting remarkable developments in atomic/molecular physics and quantum optics techniques. Examples include (A) test of the time reversal invariance by observing permanent electric dipole moments of atoms or molecules, (B) neutrino mass spectroscopy using atoms, (C) measurement of fine structure constant’s time dependence with precision atom clock etc.. Following the preceding five conferences, this conference aims to bring together recent research results, to discuss future prospects, and to expand research network, making this field more active and productive. In particular, we focus on understanding of our matter universe this year.
