LKB - Quantum fluctuation and relativity

Quantum Fluctuations and Relativity

The group’s research is centered on the physics of quantum fluctuations and fluctuation-induced forces. We study in particular the Casimir effect and related phenomena in atomic physics or nanophysics. We also investigate the physics at the border between quantum theory and gravitation and in the tests of the laws of gravitation.
