Speaker: Senka Duric Title: Electroweak and Higgs physics at the LHC: The present and the future Abstract: Contrary to all expectations, experiments at the LHC did not discover any fundamentally new particles other than the Higgs boson. However, a lot can be learned from precision measurements of Higgs boson properties and the production of vector

Speaker: Michael Fleischhauer (Univ. of Kaiserslautern) Title: Non-local nonlinear optics using Rydberg atoms Abstract: Photons do not easily interact with each other and nonlinear processes
on the few-photon level can usually be realized only under very special
conditions. Coupling of weak light fields to atoms involving Rydberg states
may change this picture. Under conditions of electromagnetically induced
transparency (EIT)
