Dominique Sugny, professor at the Laboratoire Interdisciplinaire Carnot de Bourgogne – ICB, was awarded in 2015 the Hans Fisher Fellowship of the Technical University of Munich (Technische Universität München, Institute for Advanced Study, http://www.tum-ias.de/), for his work on the applications of optimal control theory to Nuclear Magnetic Resonance and to Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI).
Dominique Sugny studied theoretical physics at ENS Lyon, where he got the Agrégation in Physics in 1997 and a master in theoretical physics in 1998. He obtained his PhD in 2002 at the Laboratory of Physical Spectrometry in Grenoble, under the supervision of M. Joyeux. After a post-doc in the group of O. Atabek at the Laboratoire de Photophysique Moléculaire (Orsay, Paris), he was appointed in 2003 as Maître de Conférences at the Université de Bourgogne in Dijon, in the group of H.R. Jauslin (Quantum and Nonlinear Dynamics). He obtained his Habilitation in 2009 and was appointed Professor in 2014. He has established many long runing national and international collaborations, in particular with the group of S. Glaser (TUM, Munich). His domains of expertise are molecular Physics, the control of quantum systems by electromagnetic fields and nonlinear dynamics.
The Journal International du CNRS published an article on quantum control. Dominique SUGNY, professor of physics at the ICB, participated as a scientific consultant.
Summary : Controlling chemical reactions by laser, manipulating bits in a quantum computer, improving MRI images … These are the promises of quantum control, a booming discipline that is about to revolutionize our daily lives.
