David Wilkowski Group

Our major research areas are on Ultracold gases and nanophotonics, regrouping four major research axe. We are using Ultracold gases as quantum simulators to address problems in condensed-matter physics and high energy physics in presence of (Non)-Abelian gauge fields. We are also exploring gauge fields as a resource to create geometrical Qubits and new devices for matter wave manipulations.

We are also interested in light-matter interaction, collectives and/or cooperative phenomena in dense atomic media with applications in spectroscopy, information and precision measurement.

We are merging atomics systems with nanophotonics devices to control atom/surface interaction and realize strong coupling between atoms and nanophotonics devices. We also use nanophotonics devices to create new types of optical tweezers and imaging systems for cold atoms. We are developing precision measurements with the strontium optical clock for gravity detection and to address the problem of quantum states evolutions in gravitational fields.
