Comprenons-nous vraiment la mécanique quantique ?
(EDP Sciences – Savoirs Actuels – 2nd ed., 2018)
Philippe Jacquier, leader of the “Quantum solid and liquid helium” team since 2003, passed away on Jan.24, 2019. Philippe has battled against disease for many years with impressive courage and steadfast determination. He was an excellent teacher and a passionate researcher. The group will long miss his deep sense of humour and friendship, as well as the enthousiasm, the inventiveness, the curiosity, and the broad knowledge that made working with him so pleasant every day.
Jules Grücker has defended his “Habilitation à diriger les recherches”, entitled “Metastable Solid and Liquid Helium-4”, on Nov.30, 2018.
Ali Dia (PSL Research University & St Joseph Universiy of Beirut, Lebanon) has joined the group for co-supervised PhD work on laser optical pumping of helium at low field (Nov. 2017 – Nov. 2020).
Polarised helium - Low field MRI
Skilled and motivated students are welcome to join our investigations on low field MRI with laser polarised ³He gas or thermally polarised water. Work may focus on the impact of concomitant field gradients on image quality, or investigate the short-pulse limit and revisit the Bloch-Siegert effect in NMR. This topic is open for PhD.
Polarised helium - Liquid NMR
Skilled and motivated students are welcome to join our investigations on liquid NMR in laser polarised ³He-⁴He dilute solutions. Work will deal with recently observed non linear NMR dynamics and focus on the comparison between experimental and numerical data. This topic is not (yet) open for PhD.
2018-2019 - M1 level internships
Skilled and motivated students are welcome to join on-going investigations. M1-level students may contribute to:
- Investigation of the impact of concomitant field gradients on image quality in low field MRI
- Investigation of collisional processes in helium discharges using laser spectrocopy
- Implementation of annular beam shaping for helium laser optical pumping
We are always looking for brillant motivated scientists to join our group.
