Institut Matériaux Microélectronique Nanosciences de Provence (IM2NP)

Linking fundamental research to applications within our fields of expertise. Multidisciplinary research unit with more than 300 members at the junction of physics, chemistry and microelectronics, IM2NP masters a large spectrum of competencies that allows relying numerous fundamental aspects to applications in the field of advanced materials, of integrated electronics and nanosciences.

Main key-objectives:

Linking fundamental research to applications within our fields of expertise.

Five main directions:

. Revealing nanostructures: Build, visualize, probe

. Elaboration and modelling of functional nanomaterials and nano-devices

. Transformation and growth of materials at different scales (from nm to mm)

. Specific environments: detection, characterisation, signal processing and reliability

. From the emerging device to eco-energetics systems.

Key application sectors: energies (photovoltaic, thermoelectricity, nuclear fission/fusion), safety & defence (high level reliability, signal, stealth), health (E-health), transport (aeronautical, spatial), communication (IOT, RFID), environment (detection, catalysis)
