Laboratories

Research at ESPCI is not organized along the typical scheme of a handful of discrete, single-discipline departments. Instead, it is arranged as a larger assembly of topic-focused laboratories collectively covering a large and diverse subject area across physics, chemistry and biology. Today, such assembly brings together 11 research laboratories , all endorsed and jointly supported by CNRS.

The direct links to the 11 ESPCI/CNRS Research Labs, with their internal teams, are below:

  • Langevin Institute "Waves & Images" (A. Tourin) :
