Welcome to the new ICMP - Institute of Condensed Matter Physics / Institut de Physique de la Matière Condensée

The wish to develop new synergies in our research activities in condensed matter, nanoscience and quantum photonics within a single institute has led to a merger between the Institut de Physique de la Matière Complexe (IPMC), the Institut de Physique des Nanostructures (IPN) and the Institut de Photonique et d'Electronique Quantiques (IPEQ). Our new institute is called
Institute of Condensed Matter Physics - Institut de Physique de la Matière Condensée (ICMP).
 
This new institute focuses on innovative research programs ranging from novel electronic materials including superconductors, to granular materials and composites, to biomaterials, to molecular materials, and down to nanostructures with well defined size, shape and composition. New properties emerging from their reduced dimensions are studied and strongly correlated electron systems are investigated. Of particular interest are electronic structure, magnetism, electronic transport, electron emission, and optical properties. By developing new experimental techniques, our quest for a quantitative understanding of fundamental processes and new effects in condensed matter down to the atomic level will be pursued.

WELCOME

The physics of solid matter at the nanoscale is the principal research activity of the Institute of  Nanostructure Physics (IPN). Our efforts focus on

- establishing new fabrication procedures of nanostructures with well defined size, shape and composition
- t
he experimental study of the new properties emerging from their reduced dimensions
- t
he investigation of the properties of strongly correlated systems.

Of particular interest are electronic structure, magnetism, electronic transport, electron emission, and optical properties.

BIENVENUE

La physique de la matière condensée à l'échelle du nanomètre est l'activité de recherche principale de l'Institut de Physique des Nanostructures (IPN). Nos efforts se concentrent sur

- de nouvelles voies de fabrication de nanostructures de taille, de forme et de composition bien définies
- l'étude expérimentale des propriétés nouvelles émergeant de leurs dimensions réduites
- l'étude des propriétés des systèmes fortement corrélés.

Ces études portent sur la structure électronique, le magnétisme, le transport, l'émission électronique et les propriétés optiques.
