Article from CNRS News
The CNRS Gold Medal was created in 1954 as one of the most prestigious French scientific awards. This year it will distinguish the physicist Jean Dalibard for his pioneering research in the physics of ultracold quantum matter. He has made major contributions to the emergence of quantum technologies, which are based on a deep understanding of the quantum properties of matter and how to control them. After a 30-year career at the CNRS, he is now a professor at the Collège de France. He will be awarded the CNRS gold medal on December 8, 2021 during a ceremony in Paris.
