Philippe Bouyer obtained his PhD at the Kastler Brossel laboratory of the Ecole Normale Supérieure in 1995 under the supervision of Christophe Salomon. In 1995, he began a post-doctoral fellowship at Stanford University, where he developed under the direction of Mark Kasevich the first experiments of inertial sensors (gyrometers, gradiometers) based on matter waves. He joined the CNRS and the Institut d’Optique Graduate School in 1996. Within the Atomic Optics group (now the Quantum Gases group), with Alain Aspect, he worked on Bose-Einstein condensates, atom lasers and Anderson localization with cold atoms.
Since 2011, Philippe Bouyer is participating in the launch of the Aquitaine branch of the Institut d’Optique Graduate School. He is now the delegated director for this antenna, and has been the director of LP2N laboratory since its creation. He has set up a new research group that is interested in ultra-cold atom quantum simulators and the development of atomic interferometers for testing general relativity in microgravity or for detecting gravity fields and gravitational waves with an underground antenna.Together with Arnaud Landragin and Bruno Desruelle, he founded the company MUQUANS, which produces integrated quantum solutions.
