Our laboratory

The Laboratoire Collisions-Agrégats-Réactivité, LCAR, is a laboratory centered in fundamental physics organized around two main fields : the study of laser-matter interaction and the study of molecular structures and dynamics.

- The study of laser-matter interaction focuses on matter
waves studies and strong-field physics.

- The study of molecular structures and dynamics develops the
study and measurement of the properties of clusters, molecules of
biological interest, and nano-objects in their environment.

The experimental projects require the development of cutting-edge technologies in the domain of charged particle detection and laser devices leading to collaboration with industry in some cases.

The theoretical projects are focused on numerical methods development and require large computer resources.

The two main research areas are structured in five experimental teams and one theoretical team which transverses both research areas.

LCAR research has many national and international collaborations. It belongs to the Fédération IRSAMC and is a member of the labex NEXT which includes IRSAMC, LNCMI and CEMES.
