Thibault Peyronel

Research Scientist

I have been a Research Scientist at Meta Connectivity Lab since 2015. My work focuses on innovation across different fields, including satellite connectivity, wireless communications and fiber. I enjoy working on a wide range of problems, spanning from system analysis to material science. Prior to joining Meta I was a post-doctoral Fellow at the Harvard Quantum Optics Center. Before that, I received my PhD from MIT, working on atomic physics and quantum optics experiments. In particular, I built an experiment demonstrating that photons, who typically do not interact with one another, could strongly repel or attract each other while traveling through carefully laser-cooled atomic vapors. This work was recognized by the APS 2014 Outstanding Doctoral Thesis Research in AMO Physics award. My BS and MS were pursued in France, at Louis-Le-Grand Preparatory Classes and Ecole Polytechnique.
