In search of the very coldest


Over het onderzoek

Did you know that the coldest temperatures in the universe are measured on our earth? Researchers can cool gases from atoms to a fraction above the absolute zero of -273° C. At the University of Antwerp, Senne Van Loon explores the very coldest: by investigating ultra-cold gases, he helps to broaden our knowledge of quantum physics.

Senne Van Loon

Driven by the urge to understand everything, Senne Van Loon quickly made the choice to study Physics. Throughout his education at the University of Antwerp, interest grew and he started in 2016 with a PhD in the research group "Theory of Quantum systems and Complex system" (TQC in brief). There he conducts fundamental theoretical research into ultra cold gases, in order to learn more about all kinds of interesting phenomena in Quantum Physics.
