Superfluidity is one of the most striking manifestation of quantum many-body physics. Initially observed in liquid Helium, the realization of atomic Bose-Einstein condensates (BEC) has allowed detailed investigations of this macroscopic quantum phenomenon exploiting the precise control over the system parameters. In the group, we study superfluidity of light in hot atomic vapor with special interest on low dimensionality and beyond mean field effects.

Out-of-equilibrium physics

We study out-of-equilibrium phenomena in a paraxial fluid of light. Since we can shape the fluid density and velocity with a high degree of control and detect the full wave-function of our state (density and phase) we have access to novel experiments with unprecedented control.
