Physics

Grenoble laboratories in physics are recognized worldwide in many domains of condensed matter and nanosciences, such as magnetism, superconductivity, quantum hybrid devices, mesoscopic physics, low temperature instrumentation, nanostructures of semiconductors and photonics.
Our research activity covers several of the most advanced scientific domains relevant for quantum engineering:


The above topics are addressed by both experimental and theoretical groups working in close collaboration. In addition, transverse theoretical aspects are addressed such as quantum architectures for analog simulations of complex matter or topologically protected computation. Original ab initio methods and algorithms are developed to estimate the coupling of quantum systems in a non-empirical way, to simulate driven and quenched quantum systems under far-from-equilibrium conditions, to explore the coherence of a quantum bit coupled to a bath beyond the Born-Markov approximation or the possibility to use decoherence as a resource.

Grenoble laboratories have developed an exceptional offer in terms of nano-fabrication and nano-characterization. More than 1000 m2 of clean rooms are equipped with the most advanced tools. Almost all of these equipments are fully accessible to all the actors of research including PhD students.

Grenoble research laboratories invested in quantum engineering are:


LANEF is a laboratoire d’excellence which gathers the 4 above laboratories as well as G2ELab, Grenoble electrical engineering laboratory.

The Nanosciences Foundation is a local foundation targeted at making the Grenoble scientific campus highly visible and attractive.
The Centre for Theoretical Physics Grenoble-Alpes (CTPGA) gathers all Grenoble theorists with the objective to develop local collaborations and organize scientific events.
