Jean-Marc Sparenberg's homepage
Welcome on my professional website!
My (amateur) political website is available here: Political Simplicity.
My (amateur) notes on free software (linux, kubuntu...) is available here: Linux notes.
I am a (not so amateur!) Physics Professor at the École polytechnique de Bruxelles, the Applied Sciences Faculty of the Université libre de Bruxelles.
I graduated from that school as a Physics Engineer in 1994 and as a PhD in Applied Sciences in 1999.
I also graduated from the École Centrale Paris in 1994.
Both my teaching and research activities are related to quantum physics, a fascinating scientific discipline with was born around the year 1900 and which is still under construction...
My activities deal with theoretical quantum mechanics, with a particular emphasis on
- quantum scattering theory, in particular the scattering inverse problem
- supersymmetric quantum mechanics, in particular applied to the resolution of the scattering inverse problem
- low-energy nuclear reactions, in particular relevant to nuclear astrophysics
- mesoscopic quantum systems, in particular Bose-Einstein condensates
- the foundations of quantum mechanics, in particular the quantum description of measurement apparatuses in a deterministic approach.
I also have a deep philosophical interest for the fundamental problem of the nature (and existence?) of time but I have not actively worked on that topic (yet!).
My activities take place in the Nuclear Physics and Quantum Physics research unit,
which is a joint unit of the École polytechnique de Bruxelles and the Physics Department
of the Faculty of Sciences of the Université libre de Bruxelles.
