The cooling of atoms by laser has allowed a revolution in the field of quantum technologies.
Large arrays of individually controlled atoms trapped in optical tweezers are a very promising platform for quantum engineering applications. However, deterministic loading of the traps is experimentally challenging
Quantum technologies can be presented to the public with or without introducing a strange trait of quantum theory responsible for their non-classical..

The team of R Carminati developed a theoretical framework for the analysis of the quantum coherence of light emitted by two single photon sources in a structured environment.
Sound waves are ubiquitous in physics, in particular in the macroscopic quantum world where all superfluids of neutral particles have an acoustic excitation branch.
The celebrated Hong, Ou and Mandel (HOM) effect is one of the simplest illustrations of two-particle interference, and is unique to the quantum realm. In the original experiment, two photons arriving simultaneously in the input channels of a beam-splitter were observed to always emerge together in one of the output channels
