Cold Atoms


Wave propagation in diffusive media is an important subject for numerous fields (medical imaging, acoustics, seismology, stellar physics, …). The experiments that we pursue make use of an original medium: a laser-cooled atomic cloud. The peculiar properties of this diffusive medium (strong resonances, strong nonlinearity, quantum internal structure of the scatterers, mechanical effects of light on the atoms, quantum effects…) give rise to a very rich physics. We study several subjects in this context.
More generally, we are interested in collective effects in light-atom interaction, which include multiple scattering of light but also nonlinear optics or cooperative scattering.
We have also studied dynamics of matter waves with a Bose-Einstein condensation experiment.
Finally, we have been involved in a fruitful collaboration with astrophysicists on the measurement of light correlations (Hanbury Brown and Twiss technique).
Our work is mainly experimental, using three cold-atom apparatus and several smaller hot-vapor setups, but also theoretical, in particular through many collaborations.

News & Events

Jan. 2020: The physics price of the national academy of Luxembourg awarded to Robin Kaiser

Robin has been awarded the "Grand Prix 2020 en sciences physiques de l'Institut Grand-Ducal / Prix Paul Wurth", see the press release here. Congratulations to him! A ceremony will take place in November.

Dec 2019: Publication in Physical Review Letters

The paper "Collective multimode vacuum Rabi splitting" has been published in PRL! This paper describes a new collective effects discovered by studying the switch-on dynamics of light scattered by cold atoms.

Nov. 2019: Workshop on Atoms and Photons at Nice

We're organizing a small workshop on our research topics in Nice (5-7 November). See the dedicated webpage for more information.

Oct. 2019: International collaborative ANR grant - PI: Mathilde Hugbart (Fouché)

The QuaCor project (Cold atoms, photons, and quantum correlations) is a collaborative project involving two teams: in Nice, France (Mathilde Hugbart, William Guerin and Robin Kaiser) and in São Carlos, Brazil (Romain Bachelard, Raul Teixeira and Philippe Courteille). The goal is to study the capability of developping correlated photons sources and memories, based on collective and multimode quantum states of atomic ensembles. A post-doc position will be open soon, please contact Mathilde if you're interested.

Sept .- Oct. 2019: Welcome to the new members of the team !

In September / October the cold-atom team has changed a lot, with three departures and three arrivals. Romain Bachelard and Dilleys Ferreira left to go back to São Carlos, Brazil, and Patrizia Weiss also left to go back to Tübingen, Germany. Thanks and good luck to them. At the same time, Raoni Sávio joined as a post-doc, and Pierre Lassègues and Hector Letellier joined as PhD students. Welcome to them!

Our main current research topics are:

Cooperative scattering

When a photon is sent onto an atomic ensemble, it interacts collectively with the N atoms of the cloud and not simply with one of them. This results in measurable modifications in the scattering rate, the emission diagram or the temporal dynamics. We study these cooperative effects experimentally and theoretically. Recently, remarkable results have been obtained, in particular the direct observation of subradiance and superradiance in the linear-optics regime. This research topic is currently funded by the ANR project QuaCor, the QUANTERA project PACE-IN, and the EU project ColOpt.

Fluctuations and correlations of light: from atoms to stars

We study the fluctuations and correlations of light after interaction with cold or hot atomic vapors, either after transmission through the atoms, or after scattering by the atoms, in the single and multiple scattering regimes. We also collaborate with astrophysicists of the Observatoire de la Côte d'Azur to work towards the revival of intensity interferometry (Hanbury Brown and Twiss technique) with modern photonic technologies. This research topic is currently funded by the ANR project QuaCor and the Région PACA project I2C.

Nonlinear optics: superfluid light and self-organization

Atomic vapors have strong optical nonlinearities that we use in experiments with hot or cold vapors. In the latter case, the mechanical aspect plays also a role, with the spontaneous formation of atomic-density patterns. This research topic is currently funded by the EU projects ColOpt and PhoQus.

Localization of light

When a wave propagates in a strongly disordered medium, it is predicted that above a certain level of disorder, interference effects completely block the wave diffusion. This so-called Anerderson localization has never been clealy observed for light. We have been studing, at a theoretical level, if and how a cold-atom cloud could be an appropriate medium for observing this effect. We are now building a new cold-atom experiment in order to experimentaly observe this effect.This research topic is currently funded by the ERC project ANDLICA.

Light-induced long-range forces

We also study the mechanical action of light on cold atoms during the multiple-scattering process. For example, it can give rise to mechanical instabilities, which we studied experimentally and theoretically. Moreover, it gives a force that is long-range, like Coulombian and gravitational interactions. As a consequence, there are interesting analogies with plasma physics and gravitational systems. This research topic is currently funded by the EU project ColOpt.
