PolaFlow was a European funded network (ERC-2012-StG_20111012) on the period from 1 November (2012) till 31 October (2017) based in Lecce (Italy) under the supervision of Daniele Sanvitto, with two partners, in Heraklion (Crete) under the supervision of Pavlos Savvidis and in Madrid (Spain) under the supervision of Fabrice Laussy. On January (2017), the Madrid (Laussy) group moved to Wolverhampton. The present page focuses on the Madrid node.

The network studied the physics of microcavity polaritons. Madrid provided essentially a theory support (Blanca was our Fermi of the group, doing everything both experimental and theoretical).
