Puce Scientific goals

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 » -INSIS-.
LPN is one of the 6 large technological facilities of first circle of the french national nanofabrication network : RENATECH.

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.

Organisation chart of LPN

The 8 research groups of LPN are organized under four major areas :




Microfluidics and Nano-Biotechnology

and 2 transversal areas :

Opto-electronic devices
and applications


These groups are strongly supported by two platforms :

as well as four technical services :
