Francesca Ferlaino awarded Cécile DeWitt-Morette prize

Francesca Ferlaino was awarded the “Cécile DeWitt-Morette / School of Physics Houches” prize of the French Academy of Sciences

The “Cécile DeWitt-Morette / School of Physics Houches” prize of the French Academy of Sciences was created in 2019 to honor the memory of Cécile DeWitt-Morette, renowned scientist and founder of the École de Physique des Houches in 1951.

The prize was awarded for the first time this year and amounts to Euro 15.000. Francesca Ferlaino won the prize for her “remarkable work on ultra-cold atom gases” ranging from the early investigation on Efimov physics to the more recent results on dipolar quantum gases of Erbium and Erbium-Dysprosium. Her work paves the way to a better understanding of quantum physics and for future applications in quantum simulation and quantum engineering.
