Pierre Aigrain Laboratory - UMR 8551

LPA is involved with several fundamental aspects of nano-physics, namely quantum dots, semiconductor microcavities, mesoscopic conductors, superconducting thin films, carbon nanotubes and DNA molecules. Research is focused both on the experimental and theoretical study of these nano-objects, which are attracting great interest due to their promising applications in opto-electronics, quantum information, molecular electronics and biophysics. LPA benefits of a solid network of national and international collaborations with one privileged partner, the Laboratory of Photonics and Nanostructures at Marcoussis.

The experimental tools at LPA are those of ultrafast coherent optics, infrared spectroscopy, dc and radio-frequency electron transport, nano-mechanics at the pico-newton scale. In addition to the experimental investigations, an important theoretical activity is carried on.

LPA is formed by about 60 researchers: CNRS-researchers, professors and assistant professors, engineers and technical staff, PhD students and post-docs. LPA has seven different experimental teams, one theoretical group and an administration service. LPA collaborates actively to the teaching activities at ENS and at the Universities of Paris 6 and 7.
