About the Conference

Welcome to ICSCE-7

The 7th International Conference on Spontaneous Coherence in Excitonic Systems (ICSCE-7jwill take place in Hakone, Japan, on April 21-25, 2014. The conference is the seventh in a series of meetings on spontaneous coherence in excitonic systems that were held in Pennsylvania, USA (2004), Southampton, United Kingdom (2005), Les Houches, France (2007), Cambridge, United Kingdom (2008), Lausanne, France (2011), and Stanford, USA (2012).

The ICSCE-8 will be held in Scotland, UK in Spring 2016, organized by Professor Jonathan Keeling (University of St. Andrews). (LINK)

Conference Topics

The conference aims at bringing together the ever growing community of world-wide researchers studying quantum collective phenomena in various kinds of excitations. The meeting encourages interdisciplinary discussions towards Bose-Einstein condensation of excitons and polaritons, so it is intended that the topic of spontaneous coherence in excitonic systems will be interpreted widely. The topics include

  1. Exciton condensation, polariton condensation, photon condensation, and lasing
  2. Superradiance and superradiant phase transitions in ultrastrong-coupling systems
  3. Quantum condensation of elementary excitations in solids
  4. Topological effects in exciton/polariton systems
  5. Connection between cold atom physics and exciton/polariton nonequilibrium condensation physics
  6. Interplay between quantum optics and semiconductor many-body optics
