Kastler Brossel Laboratory
Antoine Heidmann, Director
Presentation : The Kastler Brossel Laboratory (LKB) is one of the main actor in the field of fundamental physics of quantum systems. Many new themes have appeared recently in this field, like quantum entanglement or Bose-Einstein Condensation in gases, which leads to a constant renewal of of the research carried out in the laboratory. Presently its activity takes several forms : cold atoms (bosonic and fermionics systems), atom lasers, quantum fluids, atoms in solid helium ; quantum optics, Cavity quantum electrodynamics ; quantum information and quantum theory of measurement ; quantum chaos ; high-precision measurements. This themes leads not only to a better understanding of fundamental phenomena, but also to important applications, like better more precise atomic clocks,improvement of interferometric gravitational wave detectors or new methods for biomedical imaging.
