This research team is part of the LP2N laboratory of the "Institut d'Optique d'Aquitaine" (IOA) in Bordeaux, France.
The research group "Cold Atoms in Bordeaux" (CAB) is devoted to the use of atomic waves, either to exploit the unrivaled sensitivity of matter-wave interferometers or to develop quantum simulators where the atoms are used to study the properties of transport and propagation in exotic potentials.

Ultracold atoms and matter-waves
We are exploring the physics of ultracold atoms and matter-waves through 6 research projects.
ALCALINF studies the interplay between quantum mechanics and gravity with Strontium atom interferometry.
AUFRONS bring ultracold atoms close to nanostructures to create new quantum simulators for condensed matter.
BIARO uses ultracold atoms in a resonant cavity to explore quantum physics and squeezing.
ICE bring atom interferometry in microgravity for studying the frontiers of General Relativity.
iXAtom joins academic research and industrial R&D to design the next generation of navigation systems.
MIGA is a large infrastructure to study Gravitation Wave physics.
