Welcome to the

Laboratory for Quantum Gases at EPFL

The coolest place of EPFL !

Our laboratory explores the physics of atomic gases cooled down to ultra low temperatures, in the nano-Kelvin regime. We use these atoms to study the complex structures that emerge from the interplay of quantum interferences, interactions between the particles and geometry. Our activities are at the crossing of quantum optics, atomic and molecular physics and condensed matter physics.
