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.
