Lindsay LeBlanc is Assistant Professor of Physics at the University of Alberta, Canada Research Chair in Ultracold Gases for Quantum Simulation, and Fellow of the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research (CIFAR) Quantum Materials program. During her Ph.D. at the University of Toronto, she first began thinking about ferromagnetism in ultracold Fermi gases and, for a time, thought her final thesis project would be demonstrating Stoner ferromagnetism in the lab, but it turned out to be more complicated than initially thought. After a postdoctoral fellowship at the Joint Quantum Institute, Maryland, she began her own group in Alberta, where she continues to work on quantum simulation experiments, in addition to newer exploits in atomic quantum memory and hybrid quantum technologies.


The Quest to Make a Ferromagnet with Cold Atoms

Experimentalists working with cold atoms are closing in on the famous Stoner model of ferromagnetism. Read More »
