Research fields

The PEPS division is composed of experimentalists and theorists, having a common interest in radiation-matter interaction, considered either as an object or as a tool for our studies. It gathers three research teams:

- The "Theory of Light-Matter and Quantum Phenomena (RMPQ)" team, developing its activity around 6 main topics:

Non-equilibrium quantum dynamics Casimir-Lifshitz interactions Heat transfer Complex quantum systems Many-body physics Nanophotonics and plasmonics

Two teams gathering experimentalists :
- the "Optics of collective states and Spin (OECS)" team
- the "Solid-State Quantum Technologies (S2QT)" team

They develop their activity around 6 main topics:

Spin Physics Collective Quantum States Wide bandgap materials and UV photonics
2D Materials Nanophotonics and metamaterials Solid-state Quantum Technologies

Experimental Plateforms

The experimental activities rely on advanced facilities including:

Spectroscopy down to the UV spectral range Magneto-optics

Join us

The division offers many opportunities for internship, at all level and duration. It also offers PhD or postdoctoral positions. These offers include:

- Internship : Thermal sensing at nanoscale with a single spin qubit
- Internship : Imaging magnetism at nanoscale with a quantum magnetometer
- Internship : Identifying spin qubit defects in wide bandgap materials
- Internship : Optical thermotronics
- Internship/PhD (Master, rather 2nd year, or PhD): Spin noise spectroscopy of electrons in semiconductors->doc1184]
- Master Internship/funded PhD: Waveguide Polariton Lasers: quantum fluids of light for integrated photonics
