Guillaume Gauthier


Guillaume is a postgraduate student at the University of Queensland current undertaking a PhD under the supervision of postdoctoral research fellow Dr. Tyler Neely. 

His project aim is to progress towards a quantum emulator by controlling and measuring arrays of ultra-cold atoms. 

Guillaume hopes to produce a fully functional quantum emulator through which a full study of quantum percolation of the dual species system between lattice sites will be performed. He also expects to implement a quantum pump. 


The development of novel trapping potentials for degenerate quantum gases has been an important factor driving experimental progress in the field. The introduction of spatial light modulators (SLMs) into quantum gas laboratories means that a range of configurable geometries are now possible.
