 SPAM is a research laboratory belonging to Iramis (Saclay Institute of Matter and Radiation) attached to the Division of Matter Sciences at CEA, dedicated to fundamental research in the field of photon-matter interaction and opening also in numerous applications. 

SPAM is a member of RTRA "Triangle de la Physique", LABEX PALM and IDEX Paris-Saclay. SPAM hosts a femtosecond laser platform (SLIC) member of the LASERLAB European network and is involved in two EQUIPEX: CILEX and ATTOLAB.

The research themes developed in its laboratories are presented below.

 Physic à High Intensity

  Saclay Laser Interaction Center


Study of Matter under Extreme Conditions

Studies on the 'Servers Lasers Femto Second'

Study of the ultra-fast electric dynamic in a strong laser field



Francis Perrin Laboratory

Study of Physical Chemistry of Molecular Structures

 High-Energy-Density Matter

 Study of the physics of warm and dense plasmas
