Marc Cheneau is a CNRS researcher at the Institute of Optics in France and an experimentalist in the field of quantum gases. He earned his Ph.D. in 2009 from École Normale Supérieure in Paris, where he studied the bidimensional superfluid transition in Bose gases. He then joined the Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics in Germany, where he participated in the pioneering development of a quantum gas microscope and observed for the first time the ballistic propagation of correlations in quantum gases. His current research focuses on the relaxation dynamics of quantum gases.


A Speed Test for Ripples in a Quantum System

Settling a theoretical debate, three studies show that there is a maximum speed at which a physical effect can travel through systems of long-range-interacting particles. Read More »
