The "Center of Research on Ions Materials and Photonics" (CIMAP) at GANIL (National Large Accelerator of Heavy Ions) is a division joining the former CIRIL and SIFCOM laboratories.
CIMAP is a joint Laboratory between CEA, CNRS, the Caen High Scool of Engineering (ENSICaen) and the Caen University.
Ion-matter interaction and materials for LASER applications are its main research programs.
The activities in the LIDYL - UMR 9222 CEA-CNRS laboratory are focused on the fundamental physical and chemical aspects of the interaction between radiation and matter. The research programs range from attosecond studies of electron dynamics in simple atomic and molecular systems over dynamic studies of complex molecular and biomolecular systems up to plasmas.
The Leon Brillouin Laboratory (LLB) is located around the Orpheus nuclear reactor in the CEA-Saclay Centre. It is a joint national Laboratory between CNRS (French National Center for Scientific Research) and CEA (French Atomic Energy Commission). Its research programs are:
Welcome to SPEC!
We are the Condensed Matter Physics laboratory of IRAMIS (Saclay Institute for Radiation and Matter), a part of the French National Atomic Energy Commission (CEA: Commissariat à l'Energie Atomique) in Saclay, France.
At SPEC, we strive to be at the forefront of fundamental Condensed Matter Physics Research. Our research interests encompass a wide variety of subject matters ranging from nano-to macro-scopic scales and from the most fundamental aspects of science to applications, patents and technology transfer. SPEC is involved in many collaborations, within the CEA and at the national and international levels.
Director: Patrice Roche
The SPEC is organized in 8 groups with scientific activities developing along 9 main research themes. To find out more please visit our research themes page and/or click on groups of your interests found below.
NIMBE (Nanoscience and Innovation for Materials, Biomedecine and Energy) is a CEA-CNRS joint research unit (UMR 3685), whose activity is oriented towards the design, processing and analysis of matter from micron scale to nanoscale, as well as the understanding of the physicochemical mechanisms and their synergies, over these scales.
All these approaches are applied primarily to address major societal challenges like (nano) materials for sustainable energy management, information processing, environment, biomedical diagnostics, historical heritage...
A hundred permanent researchers and technicians depend on the NIMBE, which relies on 7 laboratories, all members of a Labex:
The unit is one of the funding members of the "Fédération de chimie physique du Plateau de Saclay" (FR3510 CNRS).
Its main activity areas are:
