PLENARY SPEECH: Jacqueline Bloch
Professor at Centre de Nanosciences et de Nanotechnol, France
Title: Polariton quantum fluids in semiconductor lattices
Non-linear photonic resonators, coupled within a lattice, have appeared in the recent years as a powerful synthetic platform to imprint on light fascinating physical properties such as superfluidity, Bose Einstein condensation processes or topological properties. Such realizations are not only interesting from a fundamental point of view, but also inspire innovative photonic devices.
More about the speaker
Jacqueline Bloch is CNRS Research director at the Center for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology in Palaiseau, France. She is an experimentalist, expert in light matter coupling in semiconductors. Making use of state of the art nanotechnology facilities available at C2N, her group has made pioneering contributions in the study of quantum fluids of light, exploring a large variety of physical problems, from superfluidity to acoustic black hole, flat band and Dirac physics, from topological photonics to KPZ universal scalings.
She is Professeur Chargée de Cours at Ecole Polytechnique. She was awarded the 2015 Jean Ricard Prize, the 2017 CNR Silver medal and the 2019 Ampère Prize of the French Academy of Science. Since 2019, she is a member of the French Academy of Science.
