Our research focuses on the optical detection, spectroscopy and analysis of single nano-objects with applications in quantum optics, condensed matter physics and biology:
- Single Nano-objects Spectroscopy (Molecules, Semiconductor nanocrystals, Single walled carbon nanotube, Metal nanostructures),
- Photothermal detection of individual non-fluorescent nano-objects,
- Super-resolution microscopy,
- Applications in Biology.
strong partnership with the Bordeaux laser industry. For this purpose, we develop low noise electronic systems, electro-optical combs.

The research teams of LP2N collectively denominated « Cold Atoms in Bordeaux » are devoted to the use of atomic waves, either to exploit the unrivalled sensitivity of matter wave interferometers or to develop simulators where the atoms are used to study the transport properties and propagation:
- Atomic interferometry and fundamental physics
- Miniaturized Atomic Inertial Sensors
- Cavity-based Bose-Einstein Condensates and Quantum Non-Destructive measurements
- Quantum propagation of matter waves and Quantum Simulators
The Light in Complex Nanostructures group studies the properties of coherent systems involving multiple and strong scattering of light with individual or ensemble of quantum or classical nano-objects or both. We tackle the problem starting from the elementary level (individual nanoparticles), to the nanosystem level (nanoparticles possibly dressed by quantum resonators, small nanoparticle assemblies), towards the macroscopic scale (complex ensembles composed of hundreds of nanoparticles interacting with micron-scale systems).
