The goal of the present workshop is to address our current understanding of scientific and technical problems in the field of twisted light and to identify the goals for further development of theory and instrumentation. This workshop brings together colleagues with a shared interest in OAM to foster interactions, collaborations and knowledge exchange across a wide range of diverse communities, including atomic, optical and chemical physics, quantum information, accelerator physics, nuclear and high-energy physics. In particular, the following topics will be covered:
- Theoretical challenges in the quantum description of twisted light
- New developments in twisted light generation: Nano focusing, Free electron lasers, Plasma and Accelerator based sources
- Twisted light at the Gamma Factory in CERN and FAIR facility
- Interactions of twisted light over a broad range of energies and systems
- Twisted waves of matter at low and high energies
Organized by Andrei Afanasev (The George Washington Univ.), Sonja Franke-Arnold (Univ. of Glasgow), Ferdinand Schmidt-Kaler (JGU Mainz), Andrey Surzhykov (PTB Braunschweig) and Dimitry Budker (JGU Mainz).
