Major in PHYSICS
Specialty CONDENSED MATTER AND NANOPHYSICS (MCN)
This experimental and theoretical training program, by and for research, aims to form specialists in Physics of Condensed Matter. It is conceived to attain a specialized know-how on the elaboration and characterization of solidstate objects and polymers, particularly at the nanometric scale. This area of research is thriving at present, due to the growing importance of nano-physics. The electronic, magnetic, and optical properties, as well as the combination of them, constitute the core of the teaching and research contents of the program, strongly oriented towards the study novel phenomena at the small-size scales.
Targeted skills :
The introduction to research is a preliminary step to a PhD thesis. In semester 4, a full-time laboratory training of at least 3 months will allow the student to test his/her ability to integrate into a research team, to confront the problems of research, synthesize the results of the performed research and assess his/her degree of autonomy. The topic can be chosen among proposals from local laboratories, as well as French and international laboratories or companies performing research.
Institute of physics and chemistry of materials of Strasbourg (IPCMS), Institute Charles-Sadron (ICS), Institute of science and supramolecular engineering (ISIS), Electronic department of the solid-systems & photonics (D-ESSP), Sciences laboratory of engineering, computing and imaging (ICube), and Laboratory physical and electronic spectroscopy (LPSE, Mulhouse).
Highly qualified students can apply for a M2 scholarship. The evaluation is based on academic performance. The financial support is provided by the laboratory of excellence NIE. More details here.
