Francesca Ferlainof_ferlaino

Professor of Experimental Physics
PhD 2004, LENS and University of Florence


Francesca Ferlaino’s research is dedicated to the experimental study of fundamental few- and many-body phenomena realized with ultracold quantum gases of atoms and molecules. The key advantage of such systems is the high degree of control achievable over their internal and external degrees of freedom. Interactions between particles, trapping environments and quantum states of atoms can be adjusted almost “on demand”, opening enormous possibilities for studying effects belonging to very different branches of physics.  The main focus here is the realization of exotic states of matter such as giant three-body states, quantum dipolar gases of highly magnetic atoms and ultracold polar molecules.
