Le développement des nanotechnologies s'appuie de plus en plus sur la logique d'assemblage spontané (auto-assemblage) ou non, des briques élémentaires que sont les nanoparticules.
Depending on the field (low-carbon energies, nanoscience for information and health technologies (fundamental research for IT and HIT), radiation-matter interaction), several IRAMIS teams are involved in this topic.
In many liquid or solid materials of our everyday life matter appears as highly divided. The precise organization of the finely divided components from the microscopic to the macroscopic scale has a huge implication on the properties of these materials. Many of these nanostructured materials are classified as "soft matter".
