Fabio Mezzacapo is a Senior Postdoctoral Researcher at the Université de Strasbourg, France. He received his Ph.D. in physics from the University of Alberta, Canada, in 2008. Until 2012, he worked at the Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics in Garching, Germany. His main current research interests are centered on strongly correlated 2D fermionic systems and quantum gases.
A new experiment reveals the different dynamics of particles and holes in ultracold fermionic gases in an optical lattice, opening the way to investigate condensed matter transport phenomena such as photoconductivity via quantum optical systems.
