LAPTh, an overview

LAPTh is a mixed research unit (UMR 5108) of the CNRS lapth-lapp(within the Institute of Physics, INP) and the Université de Savoie. It is  located in Annecy-le-Vieux, 5km from the centre of Annecy and about 40km from CERN and Geneva.  The activities of LAPTh are centred around three main areas of research:

  • phenomenology of particle physics,
  • astroparticles and cosmology,
  • mathematical physics in particular field and string theory and  aspects of symmetry.

Francesca Calore, chargée de recherche CNRS au Laboratoire d'Annecy-le-Vieux de Physique Théorique (LAPTh), lauréate de la médaille de bronze 2021 du CNRS (section 02, Institut de Physique)

Après des études en physique fondamentale à l'Université de Turin, au cours desquelles elle aura l'occasion de séjourner au Goddard Space Flight Center de la NASA, une thèse en cotutelle entre l'Université de Turin et l'université de Hambourg, et un post-doctorat à l'Université d'Amsterdam, Francesca Calore rejoint le LAPTh en 2016 après avoir brillamment réussi le concours d'entrée hautement sélectif du CNRS.

Rohini Godbole has been awarded the Ordre National du Mérite 2021

rohini-ordre-du-merite21

Prof. Rohini Godbole (Centre for High Energy Physics) has been awarded the Ordre National du Mérite by the French government. This is among the highest civilian honours bestowed by France. She has been recognised for her outstanding contributions to scientific collaborations between France and India, and her commitment to promoting the involvement of women in science.

Her remarkable scientific achievements, in India of course but also internationally have naturally led her to be involved in strong collaboration with French CNRS within the Indo French Laboratory in Theoretical High Energy Physics (IFLTHEP).

Revisiting primordial black hole capture into neutron stars

The authors study a novel stellar catastrophic process where neutron stars swallow primordial black holes, which in turn start swallowing their material, thereby turning them into black holes. In particular, they revisit well-known results on dynamical friction by focussing on several neutron star models and show that while it is very important during the capture process, accretion is the dominant process post-capture.
