The Laboratoire de Chimie Physique-Matière et Rayonnement (LCPMR) is a join research lab of Université Pierre et Marie Curie CNRS. The lab is located at the Curie-Ulm campus, on Pierre-et-Marie Curie street , and gather physicists and physical chemists teams, with experimenter and theoricians, specialized in the sudy of matter-light interactions.

Research activities

Research activities are at the heart of the pure research in matter and its interactions with radiation. Studied systems come from condensed matter (complex material, interfaces) to atoms, molecules and aggregates, isolated or adsorbed. Research activities open also onto nanosciences and attosciences (study of the dynamic of a system at attoseconds time scale).

Our lab has a very important experimental side, involved in research, instrumentation and valorisation as well. X, XUV and electronic spectroscopies are common tools for the experimenters who, together in the LCPMR, constitute an innovation and skill center. In this matter, an intense activity is developped with the synchrotron radiation, not even in Europe : ESRF (Grenoble), BESSY (Berlin), SLS (Villingen), ELETTRA (Trieste), Max (Lund) et SOLEIL, but also in the United States (ALS) and in Japan (Photon Factory). The theoretical part of the lab is made of two team, one devoted to the modelisation of solids and molecular systems excited in internal shell, and one devoted to the description of the response, in ultra short time scale, of atomic and molecular systems to strong fields.

The Laboratory is affiliated to :

The Faculty of Chemistry
The Doctoral School 388 : Physical and Analytical Chemistry
The "Institut Parisien de Chimie Physique et Théorique" IP2CT (FR2622) together with the Laboratoire de Chimie-Physique-Matière et Rayonnement (UMR7614) and the MONARIS (De la molécule aux nano-objets : réactivité, interactions et spectroscopies, UMR 8233).
