Francesca Maria Marchetti is an Associate Professor in the Theory of Condensed Matter Department of the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM). Previously, she was a Ramón y Cajal Fellow at UAM, an EPSRC Advanced Research Fellow at the University of Oxford, and an EPSRC Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Cambridge. She completed her Ph.D. in 2002 at the Scuola Normale Superiore in Pisa. Her current research interests concern the fields of degenerate gases of atoms and solid-state polaritons. She has worked on aspects of collective phenomena in strongly correlated systems, macroscopic phase coherence, and superfluidity in and out of equilibrium.

Viewpoint: Matter-Light Condensates Reach Thermal Equilibrium

Making use of improved microcavities, hybrid condensates of matter and light can be tuned to reach a thermal equilibrium state, despite their finite lifetime. Read More »
