Presentation of the programmes, activities and research centres of the CEA's Military Applications Division. Website in French.

Megajoule Laser

Megajoule Laser (thematic site)
A website dedicated to the Megajoule Laser facility,  a key component of CEA's Simulation Program. Whether you're passionate about science or simply curious, these pages will introduce you to the mechanisms, applications and implications of this highly unusual tool.

Earth and Environmental Sciences

​Earth and Environmental Sciences (thematic site)
This dedicated site presents the CEA's competencies in the domain of environmental monitoring and nuclear non-proliferation. It also informs you – virtually in real time – of seismic events occurring in the Euro-Mediterranean zone.


Magnetic Fusion (IRFM)

Magnetic Fusion
The Institute for Magnetic Fusion Research (IRFM) has created a thematic site dedicated to magnetic fusion. This site offers a wealth of information on the international ITER project, of which the IRFM is an active participant.

​Liten is a major European research institute and a driving force behind the development of the sustainable energy technologies of the future. The institute is spearheading the EU’s efforts to limit dependency on fossil fuels and reduce greenhouse gas emissions in three key areas: renewable energy, energy efficiency/storage and development of materials.

Information and health technologies

CEA Tech

CEA Tech
CEA Tech is building on CEA Leti’s successful track record innovating for industry. Our organization’s 4,500 researchers and administrative staff are dedicated to bringing manufacturers a broad range of Key Enabling Technologies developed by Leti, List, Liten, and other CEA operating divisions.


Leti is one of the most important European laboratories of applied research in electronics.

Lab of applied research on software-intensive technologies (List)

​Lab of applied research on software-intensive technologies (List)
Located south of Paris (in Saclay), List is a technological research centre for software-intensive systems.

Basic research

Fundamental research division website

Fundamental research division
Through fundamental research in biology, physics and chemistry, the basic research division (DRF or CEA Sciences) strongly contributes to all of CEA research programs in many fields of expertise, from renewable and nuclear energy, to health, lasers, micro and nanotechnology. The research carried out at CEA Sciences will continue to be at the core of the solutions to move past the major challenges of the 21st century.


Minos, Centre of excellence for nuclear materials

​MINOS, Centre of excellence for nuclear materials
This website allows to discover the objectives, activities and events organized by MINOS. It provides information on the research areas regarding nuclear materials, main equipment, means and major facilities available to achieve and sustain R&D programs for industrial partners. Through MINOS website, it is also possible to download the multidisciplinary monographs on nuclear energy civilian applications which have been published by the Nuclear Energy Division of CEA since 2006.
