Kastler Symposium 2016
Pierre-Jean Nacher has been involved in the organisation of the Alfred Kastler Scientific Symposium 2016, a one-day event which took place on Thursday, December 1st, at the ENS. Video recordings are available for all contributions to this symposium.
Read more about the events organised in Paris for the 50th anniversary of Alfred Kastler’s Nobel prize in Physics, to celebrate both the scientist and the man.
Lattice simulations in NMR - CPU versus GPU?
An exploratory, interdisciplinary, and collaborative research project has been granted support by the ICS@SU (Institute for Computing and Simulation, Sorbonne Universités) – 2016 call : “Master2+2”.
Scientific partner: E. Baudin, Piere Aigrain Laboratory.
Objective: Massively parallel computing for lattice simulations in NMR and MRI
Oral contribution to QFS2016
Qu An‘s contribution “Observation of metastable solid and superfluid helium-4 around 1 K” has been selected for oral presentation at the International Conference on Quantum Fluids and Solids 2016 (10-16 August, Prague, Czech Republic) .
Polarised helium - Laser optical pumping
We offer several types of internship work for Master students, in connection with our study of laser optical pumping in helium plasmas: spectroscopy of metastable He dimers at 465 nm; study of the impact of collisional redistribution on the atomic 2³S-2³P optical transition; optimisation of rf discharges for optical pumping in He gas. This topic is open for PhD.
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.
2017 - Post-doc
We are always looking for brillant motivated scientists to join our group.
Check the open positions (see above) or send us your CV for application.
