Director’s word

published on , updated on

The laboratory for interdisciplinary physics (LiPhy) is a joint research unit of CNRS and Grenoble-Alpes University (UMR5588). The laboratory is headed by Jean-Louis Barrat (Director) and Eric Lacot (Vice Director).

The laboratory inherits its tradition from the "Laboratoire de Spectrom├ętrie Physique" created in 1966 by M. Soutif on the new University Campus. Its seven research teams explore the frontiers of physics with a number of different research fields, from biology to climate sciences and engineering, using the three branches of modern physics: experimental, computational and theoretical.

WIth about 55 faculty members and CNRS researchers, supported by a technical staff of more than 30, and funding from a large variety of sources, the laboratory offers excellent facilities for the training of students and postdoctoral researchers, in a very international and cooperative atmosphere.
