Our group is dedicated to the study of quantum fluids and cold atomic gases. These systems display remarkable phenomena, such as quantised vortices and solitons. The underlying physics is Bose–Einstein condensation.
We are particularly interested in quantum turbulence, visualization of vortices using tracers in helium4 and Andreev scattering in helium3, finite-temperature effects in atomic condensates and dipolar gases.
This website contains descriptions of current projects and some computed animations. Welcome!
