Professor Jean-Louis Basdevant is a High energy physicist, author of physics textbooks and science history books. A former student of Ecole Normale Supérieure, he was from 1975 to 2005 professor of physics at the Ecole Polytechnique, where he taught quantum physics to generations of students, and also chaired the physics department. In research, his work focused on the three-body problem in quantum mechanics, elementary particles, quantum field theory and astrophysics.
Professor Jean Dalibard is a professor at Collège de France and a member of the Laboratoire Kastler Brossel. He was a professor at Ecole Polytechnique from 1989 to 2015, and taught quantum physics, statistical physics and quantum optics. His current research is devoted to the properties of ultracold quantum matter, like Bose-Einstein condensates and superfluids. He is a member of the French Academy of Sciences.
