Guido Pupillo is Professor of Physics at the Université de Strasbourg and Director of the Quantum Physics Lab at the Institutes IPCMS and ISIS in Strasbourg, France. After receiving his Ph.D. from the University of Maryland in 2005, for research conducted at NIST, Gaithersburg, he worked at the Austrian Academy of Sciences and at the University of Innsbruck, Austria, where he received his Habilitation in 2011. He is the recipient of the prestigious ERC St-grant 2012 and the French ANR Chair d’ Excellence 2012. His group carries out research on atomic, molecular, and optical physics, and nonequilibrium dynamics of quantum systems.
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.
