Sorbonne Université (formerly UPMC)

Prof. Antoine Heidmann

The Laboratoire Kastler Brossel (LKB) provides its researchers and students with a unique scientific environment, due to the major research institutions it is affiliated with: Ecole Normale Supérieure, Université Pierre et Marie Curie, Collège de France and Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique.

Prof. Antoine Heidmann leads the Optomechanics and Quantum Measurements group at LKB. It has been a pioneering group in optomechanics ever since it was founded in 1993, with the idea of exploring the quantum aspects of the coupling between light and mechanical resonators. The group is interested in cavity optomechanics with the main goal of overcoming the quantum limits in position measurements or demonstrating quantum-coherent transducers.
