From Lamb dip to BEC

International workshop of the School of Giuliano Toraldo di Francia in Florence dedicated to the scientific contribution of Arturo Bambini.

Arturo Bambini was certainly one of the most distinguished scientists of the National Research Council (CNR) of Italy. He got his Physics degree under the supervision of Giuliano Toraldo di Francia. Formerly appointed at the Institute of Quantum Electronics (IEQ) in Florence, he spent the last part of his career at the Institute for Applied Physics Nello Carrara (IFAC). He had much collaboration with foreign scientists, passing long periods of study abroad. His most prominent results cover several theoretical aspects in the fields of laser physics, free electron laser, laser cooling, light collisional energy transfer and Bose Einstein condensation.

In order to remember his scientific contributions, one day Workshop is organized to illustrate the main progresses in the above mentioned fields. Some of the scientists who had the pleasure of sharing with Arturo Bambini the interest in science and the excitement of new achievements will contribute to the Workshop.
