Workshop on Optically-Pumped Magnetometers 2019

WOPM 2019:  14. Aug – 16. Aug 2019

Program: The program can be found here

Posters: The poster session is here.

Venue: The WOPM 2019 will take place in the Helmholtz Institute in Mainz.

WOPM 2019 is the seventh in a row of workshops held on a yearly basis since 2013.  While last year’s WOPM was a satelite workshop of BIOMAG 2018  focussed on biomedical measurements with an emphasis on OPM-based magnetoencephalography, this year’s workshop will have a broader scope, covering topics such as

  • Novel OPM methods
  • OPM applications in medicine, biology, airborne, space, earth
  • OPM for fundamental science
  • OPM theory

We have the pleasure of inviting all (experimental and theoretical) researchers working on optical magnetometers and their applications to present their results at WOPM-2019.

The registration to the workshop is now open and will close on July 1, 2019. Abstract submission is possible until June  14, 2019.

We will select the speakers for the final program for the WOPM workshop until July 19, 2019.

The WOPM 2019 will take place in the Helmholtz Institute in Mainz.

Please find here the website of OPM-Workshop series including previous WOPMs.
