Having a broad view of the main current research topics is difficult but crucial to choose
the internship and PhD subjects, and more generally the research directions in physics.
During the first semester, a series of seminars “Physics Now” will allow the M2 ICFP students
to broad their knowledge on the current hot topics in physics and get information on
research groups and themes in France and abroad.

Seminars are organised for each program; students of one program are welcome to attend
the seminars of another if the schedule permits.

Schedule of the Seminars

 “Quantum Physics and Condensed matter Now”

Wednesday 27th October, at 12:30 - room L361
Antoine Browaeys (Institut d’Optique) - Quantum simulation with atomic arrays

Wednesday 10th November, at 12:30 - room J. Jaurès
Jean Dalibard (Laboratoire Kastler Brossel, Collège de France) - Cold atomic gases: A unique window on quantum matter

Wednesday 24th November, at 12:30 - room L361
Pascal Degiovanni (Laboratoire de Physique, ENS-Lyon) - Quantum electricity : from Ampère to electron quantum optics

 “Theoretical Physics Now”

Tuesday 26th October at 11:30am
Adam Falkowski (Laboratoire de Physique Theorique d’Orsay) - Physics beyond the Standard Model

Abstract: The Standard Model is the most fundamental theory that we have at our disposal. Since its conception 50 years ago it has passed multiple experimental tests, sometimes with stunning precision. In this talk I will summarize the motivations for considering new particles and interactions not included in the Standard Model. I will also discuss the most promising directions of research in physics beyond the Standard Model.
