Vincent Josse received his PhD at the Laboratoire Kastler Brossel (ENS Paris) in the Quantum Optics group under the supervision of Dr. E. Giacobino (DR, CNRS).
He is an Assistant professor at Institut d’Optique in the Laboratoire Charles Fabry where he is the leader of a project that focuses on quantum transport of matter wave, specifically Anderson localization. Ultracold atomic systems offers new approaches to these issues. In particular, their great promises have been demonstrated in his group by two landmarks experiments: the first demonstrations of Anderson localization with matter waves (1D and 3D) and direct signature of coherence via the coherent backscattering signal. We are currently working on a new method that will allow us to investigate the localization-delocalization quantum phase transition (Anderson transition) that occurs in 3D, the "graal" of the domain.
