The Laser Physics Department studies interactions between light and matter. Our experiments range from the most fundamental aspects of basic science to applied research: quantum physics, atomic and molecular physics, optical devices, biomedical imaging.
With lasers, we study quantum properties of atomic gases at ultra-cold temperatures; we probe atoms interacting with surfaces and nano-objects; we perform precision measurements in more and more complex molecules (up to some of biological interest); we make measurements in diffusive media or even within the human body.
And we also stabilize the laser frequency and make new sources of light using, in particular, nanotechnologies.
