The laboratory’s scientific activities cover vast fields of Physics, and are divided into six research areas:
- Statistical physics
- Quantum materials and devices
- Fluids and interfaces
- Biophysics
- Fundamental interactions
- Astrophysics

We are a joint unit (LPENS-UMR8023) of the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS), attached to the Institut de Physique (INP) of the CNRS.

Some of our activities fall under the themes of other CNRS institutes: National Institute of Universe Sciences (INSU), Institute of Biological Sciences (INSB), Institute of Engineering and Systems Sciences (INSIS).

We work in synergy with all the components of the ENS physics department and are strongly involved in teaching, at the Bachelor’s or Master’s level, within this department, as well as in training through research and mentoring of young researchers, doctoral candidates or post-doctoral candidates.

Partners

In addition to the CNRS, our main supervisors are the École normale supérieure de Paris (ENS) and the Université Paris-Sciences-Lettres (PSL), Sorbonne University (SU) and the Université Paris-Diderot (UPD).

LPENS is one of the two laboratories of the ENS Physics department, along with the Kastler-Brossel Laboratory (LKB).

It is part of the Fédération de recherche Interactions Fondamentales (FRIF-FR2687). In addition, the laboratory is in close collaboration with the Philippe Meyer Institute for Theoretical Physics (IPM).
