Presentation of the IMAPEC Team

Published on 11 March 2024
Head of Imapec

Jean-Pascal Brison

Instrumentation, Advanced materials, and Physics of correlated electron systems
Phone: +33 4 38 78 52 48

Our aim in IMAPEC is to tackle current issues in condensed matter physics through three actions:
          • State of the art measurements, especially in extreme conditions of very low temperature, high magnetic field, and high pressure that require a continuous effort to develop our own original and competitive instrumentation.
          • A well equipped crystal growth facility, with an extremely competent team, able to grow high quality crystals of known systems, and to explore new compounds.
          • A longstanding experience in the field of correlated electron physics, reinforced by strong collaborations in France and worldwide with other experimental groups and theorists.
