  • Bose-Einstein condensation of photons
  • Coherent light-matter interaction
  • High-pressure spectroscopy
My main research area is the equilibrium thermodynamics of light, specifically the study of grand canonical Bose-Einstein condensates of photons as well as Bose-Einstein condensation in tailored potentials. The goal here is to study superfluidity as well as thermodynamic properties of the system as it transitions from one dimension to two dimensions. Further experiments include the spectroscopy of gases under high pressure, the aim here is the investigation of collision-induced thermalization.
