Fundamental Research Division
The DRF at the CEA assemble approximately 6,000 scientists since January 2016.
Chemistry and processes for nanostructures: One major research goal within Iramis is a comprehensive description of the interactions between atoms and/or molecules (found in the elaboration of nano-objects and nanomaterials) and their properties.
This comprehension makes it possible to fabricate nanoproducts using precise and mastered experimental techniques with the final applications in mind. Resulting in the realization of a wide variety of "nanoproducts": complex molecules, micellar of colloidal structures, self-assembled compounds of nanostructured solids.
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
