Laser Physics Laboratory is affiliated both to CNRS and to University Paris 13. We study the 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...

The lab is structured into eight experimental research teams, four shops and an administrative department. It is composed of about seventy-five people (10 CNRS full-time researchers, 30 university teaching staff members, a technical staff of 15 people, about 20 PhD students and post-docs), plus several short-term trainees and foreign visitors.

Spin exchange and magnetization dynamics of a dipolar quantum gas


First demonstration of a chromium Fermi sea

First demonstration of a chromium Fermi seaThe Dipolar Quantum Gases team of LPL has obtained a large-spin dipolar quantum gas of the fermionic isotope of chromium, a world premiere. This work, published in Physical Review A - Rapid Communications (Chromium dipolar Fermi sea, B. Naylor, A. Reigue, E. Maréchal, O. Gorceix, B. Laburthe-Tolra, et L. Vernac), is the subject of a news of the Institut de Physique of CNRS.

The International Year of Light 2015

SIMFP 2015Fontaine lasersThis year is The International Year of Light 2015 (celebrated under the auspices of UNESCO).

In this context, the association “Atouts sciences” is invited to present to a broad audience at Gizan (Saudi Arabia) an educational experiment dedicated to popularization of science developed in LPL: “The Laser Fountain”. The experiment is presented at The Fourth Saudi International Meeting on Frontiers of Physics 2015 (SIMFP2015), organized by the Department of Physics at Jazan University, Saudi Arabia, during 17-19 February 2015.
