Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellowships

Dr Marco Piani and Dr Bruno Peaudecerf


Congratulations to both Marco Piani and Bruno Peaudecerf who were awarded prestigious Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellowships. Dr Piani will work towards the operational (e.g., task-oriented) characterization of features of correlations specific to quantum systems. On one hand, this will lead to a deeper understanding of quantum mechanics and of the behaviour of correlated systems. On the other hand, it will contribute to the development of disruptive quantum information processing technologies, with applications in metrology and communication.


Dr Peaudecerf's research is on the quantum-gas-microscope experiments led by Prof Kuhr in the Experimental Quantum Optics and Photonics group. He will work towards the realisation of engineered light potentials with spatial light modulators. This will open many experimental possibilities for the study of fermionic quantum phases in an optical lattice, such as tailored trap geometries, and entropy removal based cooling techniques, bringing the atoms down to unprecedented temperatures.
