Antoine Browaeys studied at the University of Paris Sud in Orsay, France, and obtained his Ph.D. in 2000 from the Institut d’Optique in Palaiseau, France. He spent two years at NIST in the Laser Cooling group and was hired as a scientist at the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) in 2003. He is now leading an experimental group that explores many-body physics using arrays of individual cold atoms and small and dense cold atomic clouds.


Catch and Release of Photons

Two separate groups demonstrate the temporary storage and subsequent release of photons using very different quantum devices. Read More »


Alkaline Atoms Held with Optical Tweezers

Three separate groups demonstrate the trapping of two-electron atoms in arrays of optical tweezers, opening up new opportunities for quantum simulation and many-body studies. Read More »
