UMR_C 7198 - Institut Jean Lamour (IJL)

The Institut Jean Lamour is a laboratory for fundamental and applied research in materials science and process; it brings together scientists from different disciplines. Laboratory-thematic, it covers: materials, metallurgy, plasmas, surfaces, nanomaterials and electronics.
Its research activities are led by 23 research groups organized into 4 scientific departments :

  • Physics of Matter and Materials 
  • Chemistry and Physics of Solids and Surfaces
  • Materials Science and Engineering - Metallurgy
  • Nanomaterials, Electronics and Living Systems

To respond to a number of societal issues, the Institut Jean Lamour has defined 6 transversal research, axes :

  • High temperature and cold plasmas - Thermonuclear Fusion
  • Artificial nanostructured materials
  • Advanced Interfaces for energy
  • Metallurgy
  • Theories, Modelling and Simulations
  • Materials and living systems
