Research axes of the MN2S department

Nanosciences Group

The Nanosciences group is active in the fields of physical chemistry of surfaces and interfaces.

Know more about the group

Phononics & Microscopy Group

The Phononics & Microscopy group stands at the crossroad of phononics (the analysis and the control of phonons) and of micro-instrumentation (the science of metrology of physical phenomena at the micron scale).

Know more about the group


The main goals of MINAMAS are to develop some research activities and produce some new knowledge on materials, surfaces and nano-structured thin films for Microsystems, actuators, tribology, mechanics, adhesion, …

Know more about the group


Research activities of the group focus on the miniaturization of complex optical systems, such as e.g. optical microscopes or atomic clocks, thanks to association of silicon batch-fabrication processes, micro-optics and in some cases microactuators.
