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 9 research laboratories , all endorsed and jointly supported by CNRS.

The direct links to the 9 ESPCI/CNRS Research Labs, with their internal teams, are below:

  • Langevin Institute "Waves & Images", including:
    - Waves in Complex Media (R. Carminati)

    - Non-conventional imaging and sensing (NCIS) (Claire Prada-Julia)
    - Wave Physics for Medicine and Biology - Inserm U979 (Mickaël Tanter)
  • Gulliver, including:
    - Microfluidics, MEMS & Nanostructures (P. Tabeling)
