Closing Conference

LeviNet – Zhejiang joint conference on Optical Tweezers in Vacuum

Dates: 19 – 23 August 2024
Location: Huabei Hotel, Hangzhou, China
Hosted by Prof Huizhu Hu from Zhejiang University and LeviNet’s Dr James Millen

LeviNet are pleased to announce that we will host our closing conference in collaboration with Zhejiang University, to be hosted in Hangzhou, China. This is an opportunity to forge new relationships between two research communities, to work collaboratively, and better understand the international levitated physics research landscape. The delegation from Europe, the US and Japan will represent a cross-section of research group leaders, and we hope future collaborations will benefit early-career researchers.
