Energy, Matter and the Universe

Progress in the area of health, the protection of the environment, sustainable development and the economic and technological competitiveness of France depends, to a significant extent, on new developments in physics and chemistry.

The diversity of the subject matters covered by the UPMC laboratories makes it possible to focus a very wide range of scientific challenges, such as the understanding of the structure of the Universe and matter, which represents an essential contribution to modern scinetific culture, quantum information technologies, nanosciences and new multifunctional materials and molecular chemistry applied to health and sustainable development.

Research horizon : when the nanomaterials write our future...

In the "materials" family, I'd like the "nanos". Nanomaterials have made a spectacular breakthrough into the public square since the beginning of this century. In the United States, according to the "Emerging Nanotechnologies Project"1, more than five hundred everyday objects contain them: food packaging, ...

A double helix that is more than lifelike

Research scientists from the “Colloid and divided materials” group of the LI2C laboratory, “Ionic liquids and charged interfaces” (UMR 7612 UPMC, CNRS, ESPCI) in Paris, and their colleagues at New York’s Center for Soft Matter Research, have obtained the spontaneous formation of a structure in double ...

Philippe Colomban, a light wizard in the service of art and history

His research interests lie at the crossroads of science, art and history. Director of UPMC’s LADIR (laboratory of dynamics, interactions and reactivity - 50 people) and research director at the CNRS, Philippe Colomban is working on the development of tools able to make materials “talk”, which will help ...
