Facts and Figures:

The department is a research federation (FR684) headed by the ENS and the CNRS. It provides technical platforms to the laboratories (workshop, cryogenic fluids, clean room facility, network, and logistics) and administrative support.

The life of the department is carried by those present daily in the
laboratories, classrooms, common services and the new library of experimental sciences. Composed of 450 people in total (44 owned and operated by the Federation) including 120 researchers / lecturers,the Department of Physics is the largest structure of research and teaching at the ENS.

In 2011, the department won recognition as an Excellence laboratory (“Laboratoire d’excellence”) for its research and teaching strategy.

The ENS physics department cryogenic platform has a double mission of supply of cryogenic fluids, and of expertise in cryogenics (cryostat design, probe heads design, cryogenic fluid delivery system).

The platform supplies approximately 140.000L/yr of liquid nitrogen (N2), which is delivered in self-service to the research groups. For the supply of liquid helium (about 80.000L/yr), the department is equipped with a liquefier. Gaseous helium comes from a crucial closed recovery loop installed throughout the department.
The service is run by an engineer, Olivier Andrieu (room GH 112, telephone 33 12) and an assistant engineer : Florent Perrin.
Opening hours: 8.30 am- 6.00 pm
