Maxime Richard

Maxime is a CNRS Senior researcher (Directeur de recherche). He was hired by CNRS in 2008 in Institut Néel, Grenoble, France. There, he developed experimental activities focused on Quantum fluids of light, on Quantum optics of non-linear microcavities, and on hybrid optomechanical microsystems. He recently joined CQT as a long-term Invited Associate Professor where he is developing a new laboratory for the experimental investigation and developments of highly nonlinear solid-state quantum systems.

His fields of interest are: Quantum fluids of light, Quantum optics and optoelectronics, Hybrid optomechanics, solid-state quantum systems.


We are hiring

Diffraction grating used to separate the weak thermal and quantum fluctuations taking place in a quantum fluid of light from the very bright laser probe (Frérot et al. 2023).
