The Institut de Physique Théorique (IPhT) is a laboratory of fundamental research, located in Saclay, about 20 km south-west of Paris.

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.


Spin Vertex and 3 Point Function in AdS/CFT Correspondence   


The gauge/string duality is a half-century 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 multi-color Yang-Mills theory in four dimensions, the conformal invariant  “super-QCD”, and a super-string theory in a ten-dimensional curved space, composed of a 5-dimensional anti-de Sitter (AdS) space and a 5-dimensional 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 two-dimensional systems, as the Heisenberg XXX ferromagnet. AdS/CFT gives the first example of a non-trivial 4-dimensional integrable theory.

In the last years, encouraging results have been obtained for new fundamental ...

Hélène Dupuy receives a "L'Oréal - UNESCO for women in science" fellowship   


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!

Roger Balian and François David interviewed on quantum physics   


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 !
