CEA-IRIG, Grenoble, FRANCE

The Interdisciplinary Research Institute of Grenoble (IRIG) belongs to the Commissariat for Atomic Energy (CEA), a national organization which aims at bridging the gap between fundamental research and applications. CEA’s Fundamental Research Division (DRF) is active in the fields of physics, chemistry, biology and health, materials sciences, climate sciences and the environment. Within this department, the IRIG institute, created on January 1st, 2019 by bringing together 3 former Grenoble institutes of the DRF (IBS, BIG and INAC), conducts research in biology, health, nanosciences, cryotechnologies and new technologies for energy and the environment. Physicists, chemists, biologists, physicians, computer scientists and mathematicians participate jointly in this fundamental research and the applications that result from it, giving the institute a remarkable capacity to respond to major societal challenges.

The PI lab hosts a 1200 cores / 3.5 TBytes RAM computing cluster entirely devoted to the PI’s activity. This 8-year-old cluster will be updated with a new master node, additional cores and a fast InfiniBand like connection at the beginning of the project.

CEA-IRAMIS, Saclay, FRANCE

The Service de Physique de l’Etat Condensé (condensed matter laboratory) (SPEC) is a unit of the Institut Rayonnement Matière de Scalay (IRAMIS) which belongs to the Commissariat for Atomic Energy (CEA), a national organization which aims at bridging the gap between fundamental research and applications. The SPEC has about 200 staff members (half researchers, half students and postdocs) working in the fields of Nanoelectronics, Quantronics, Spintronics, Nanophotonics, Surface Physics and imaging, Cryogenics, Complex Systems and Out of Equilibrium Physics, Theory and modelling. The SPEC is connected to the University Paris-Saclay and many of researchers have the habilitation to supervise PhD students.
