Centre de Nanosciences et de Nanotechnologies

Laboratory presentation

The Center for Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies (C2N) is a joint research unit created in 2016 from the regrouping of two leading Ile-de-France laboratories in their field: the Laboratory of Photonics and Nanostructures (LPN) and the Institute of Fundamental Electronics (IEF) ). In 2018, the teams moved into a new building in the heart of the Paris-Saclay Campus.

C2N is developing research in the fields of materials, nanophotonics, nanoelectronics, nano-bio-technologies and microsystems, as well as those of nanotechnologies. On these subjects, it deals with fundamental and applied aspects.

The C2N hosts a clean room of 2900 m2, dedicated to micro-nanofabrication processes, growth, epitaxy and characterization of materials. Spaces are also dedicated to university and permanent training in micro-nanotechnologies, and 250m2 are reserved for start-up or SME activities. This Technology Center, open to all academic and industrial players in the field, is part of the national network of micro and nanotechnology plants (Renatech).
