The Laboratoire de Photonique et de Nanostructures -LPN- (51 permanent
research staff, 41 technical staff, and about sixty non-permanent staff)
is a fully-owned unit of the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique
-CNRS- under the CNRS institutes « Institut de Physique »
-INP- and « Institut des Sciences
de l'Ingénierie et des Systèmes »
LPN carries out its research activities within the general context of nanosciences, at the cross-roads of quantum optics and electronics, of physics, chemistry and biology, of materials science and device physics. LPN develops the new technologies and the concepts that will initiate innovation both in basic and in applied science.
Here is a link to organisation chart of LPN.
The 8 research groups of LPN are organized under four major areas :
and 2 transversal areas :
These groups are strongly supported by two platforms :
as well as four technical services :
and five operational units :
