Quantum Transport of Matter Waves

Group leader : Vincent JOSSE

In close relation to the fundamental transport properties of electrons in condensed matter physics, we aim to study the quantum propagation of ultracold bosonic matter-waves through tailored optical potentials. Such a system can be considered a quantum simulator. We focus on two main topics:

Anderson Localization of ultracold atoms, one or three dimensional, in well controlled laser speckle disorder.

The guided atom laser: a new tool for studying 1D quantum transport phenomena
