The research performed at the IPhT aims at better understanding the laws which govern our universe and its organisation. It encompasses most of the great subjects of modern theoretical physics:
The IPhT comprises about fifty permanent physicists (2/3 CEA, 1/3 CNRS), about thirty PhD students and postdocs, assisted by a support staff of about ten people. The IPhT also hosts permanently many short term visitors.
The gauge/string duality is a halfcentury old idea, which appeared as an attempt to give an adequate description of strongly correlated quantum field theories, such as QCD. The best studied example of such a duality, known by the name AdS/CFT, is the relation between the maximally supersymmetric multicolor YangMills theory in four dimensions, the conformal invariant “superQCD”, and a superstring theory in a tendimensional curved space, composed of a 5dimensional antide Sitter (AdS) space and a 5dimensional sphere. The dramatic progress of our understanding of AdS/CFT achieved in the last decade was triggered by the discovery that both sides of the correspondence possess the same integrable structure of the type usually associated with twodimensional systems, as the Heisenberg XXX ferromagnet. AdS/CFT gives the first example of a nontrivial 4dimensional integrable theory. In the last years, encouraging results have been obtained for new fundamental ...

Hélène Dupuy, 3d year graduate student in cosmology at IPhT, under the supervision of Francis Bernardeau, was awarded a L'Oréal  UNESCO "For women in Science" fellowship 2014. Every year, these fellowships are awarded in France to 10 outstanding graduate students, from all scientific domains, in order to support their research activities, as well as encourage outreach actions. Our warm congratulations to Hélène!

In December 2013, we interviewed two of our eminent scientists, Roger Balian and François David, about the foundations of quantum mechanics. We have used the 17 questions ( educed to 15) of Maximilian Schlosshauer in his book "Elegance and Enigma: The Quantum Interviews" in order to set up a context in which to ask the questions. The result is a movie that you can watch on this site. Enjoy the show ! For more information: Understanding quantum measurement from the solution of dynamical models, A. Allahverdyan, R. Balian, T.
