Trapping of nanoparticles and cold neutral atoms

Dr. Sophie Loire


I work on modeling the apparition of trapping of nano-sized particles using a combination of DEP, fluid flow (such as AC electroosmosis) and Brownian motion. I also study the trapping of cold neutral atoms in an electro-magnetic ring trap. I investigate the effect of time-dependency of the electric field on the dynamical behaviors of the particles in these two configurations and consider the optimization of these methods.
