Quantum Physics Fundamental and Applied Research


The training site Quantum Physics Fundamental and Applied Research offers the possibility to apply for PhD or shorter periods at the Laboratories Kastler-Brossel. Marie Curie Fellowships concerning several domains of great interest in modern quantum physics are proposed. The themes proposed to the fellows range from ultra cold atoms and Einstein-Einstein condensation to cavity quantum electrodynamics, study and manipulation of quantum fluctuations, metrology of simple systems, Colombian system dynamics, and quantum optics. Some important applications of such fundamental issues are also developed, like quantum treatment of information, experimental study of optical micro- and structures-structures, Magnetic Resonance Imaging with polarized helium, study of biological molecules. For all these subjects, the training will include both theoretical and experimental investigation. The proposed host institution, LaboratoireKastler-Brossel, has pioneered since the 1950 important advancements in the field of light-matter interaction, from the seminal work of Kessler on optical pumping to the many recent developments, as for instance the work of Cohen-Tannoudji's team on laser cooling. The two Nobel prizes attributed to these two group leaders in 1966 and 1997 prove both the exceptional scientific tradition and the outstanding present level of the laboratory. In addition to that, the laboratory has strong links with several European and non-European institutions, giving the fellows the possibility to establish their scientific formation at an international level; our proposal intends to contribute efficiently to increase and develop cooperation’s at the European level.
