1. Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne - Institute of Condensed Matter Physics ICMP focuses on innovative research programs ranging from novel electronic materials including superconductors, to granular materials and composites, to biomaterials, to molecular materials, and down to nanostructures with well defined size, shape and composition. New properties emerging from their reduced dimensions are studied and strongly correlated electron systems are investigated. Of particular interest are electronic structure, magnetism, electronic transport, electron emission, and optical properties. By developing new experimental techniques, our quest for a quantitative understanding of fundamental processes and new effects in condensed matter down to the atomic level will be pursued.
3. Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne - Institute of the Physics of Biological Systems The Institute of Physics of Biological Systems (Institut de Physique des Systemes Biologiques, IPSB) provides a link between physics and life sciences. Its mission is to develop experimental, theoretical and numerical physics to study function, structure and properties of biological systems (Proteins, DNA, Cells, Tissues, Viruses).
The IPSB is the place where life sciences scientists and physicists meet to foster advancements in theoretical and experimental methods for living matter. Specific focus is on quantitative understanding of biological systems. Samples of our research can be found in the web pages of the different laboratories.
4. Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne - Institute of Theoretical Physics The Institute of Theorical Physics (ITP) covers a wide research area. Represented research fileds are condensed matter physics, statistical physics, biophysics, quantum optics, high-energy particle physics and cosmology. Applied tools range from fully analytical methods to high-performance computing.
5. Horia Hulubei National Institute of Physics and Nuclear Engineering - IFIN HH IFIN-HH is committed to the development of the knowledge in physics, especially of the sub-atomic one, and growing of the nuclear domain impact in society, through advanced research and the most professional services. We believe that our first-rate results in some of the most exciting areas of the physics can be a genuine source of wisdom for our community and an inspiring model of excellent inquiry for our youths.
