Journée des thésards du laboratoire de Physique, le 2 juin 2014 à l'ENS-Lyon

La journée des thésards du laboratoire aura le 2 juin 2014, en amphi B (site Monod, 3e étage). Accueil dès 8h45 autour d'un petit déjeuner, premier exposé à 9h15.


La prochaine édition de STATPHYS, la plus grande conférence internationale de Physique Statistique sera organisée à Lyon. Porté par le laboratoire de Physique, cet évènement avec plus de 1500 participants se tiendra au Centre des Congrès du 17 au 22 Juillet 2016, offrant aux échanges scientifiques un cadre exceptionnel au bord du parc de la tête d?or.

Presentation of the laboratory

The activities of the Physics Laboratory at ENS Lyon cover various fields, from quantum gravity to the prospects for air treatment by cold plasma in hospitals, accurate results for Hamiltonian systems to acoustic volcanic vents, internet traffic to physical systems exhibiting long-range interactions, to name a few examples. This multidisciplinary approach is particularly fostered by the strong association with the physics teaching activity at ENS Lyon.

The diversity of topics studied allows this laboratory to tackle old problems and emerging ones combining modeling and experiments at the highest level. Internal expertise in the laboratory can rely on a ground of exact results, on the most advanced numerical approaches, and on experiments that keep inventing new tools.

The research topics of the laboratory can be gathered into eight themes, following the presentation made in the last activity report 2005-2009:

Mathematical Physics
Condensed Matter
Statistical physics and complex systems
Signal and infophysics
Soft Matter
and Turbulence

From an administrative standpoint, the laboratory is organized into four research teams (see the banner at the top of the page, as well as the organization chart of the laboratory), which only partially overlap with the above splitting into themes. Some research topics, such as statistical physics and geophysics, are transverse to the teams.
