IRSAMC (The Institute of Research on Complex Atomic and Molecular Systems. Learn more) is a federation of four laboratories in physics and fundamental chemistry whose research activities are supported both by the University Paul Sabatier, by the CNRS and the INSA. IRSAMC is member of Labex NEXT (Nano, mesures EXtrêmes & Théorie) and hold one of CECAM nodes.


Laboratoire Collisions Agrégats Réactivité

The main research activities of LCAR are the study of dynamical processes induced in atoms, ions, molecules and clusters by collisions or by laser, as well as optics experiments oriented toward fundamental effects. The experimental techniques are based on various types of spectroscopy with sophisticated detection and manipulations of photons, electrons or ions. Learn more


Laboratoire de Chimie et de Physique Quantiques

The research at LCPQ covers a large variety of topics dedicated to Theoretical-mostly Quantum- Chemistry and Theoretical Molecular Physics. They range from methodology, an important component of the laboratory, to applications such as molecular magnetism, high-resolution spectroscopy, relativistic molecular physics, reactivity and photochemistry of coordination complexes and biomolecules, clusters and nanoparticles.

Laboratoire de Physique et de Chimie des Nano Objets

The LPCNO brings together physicists and chemists who are all involved in the synthesis, the assembly, the study of the physical properties and the modelling of nano-objects. he researchers and researchers-lecturers from INSA or UPS or CNRS belong to one of the five research groups of the laboratory (Nanostructures and Organometallic Chemistry, Nanomagnetism, Quantum Optoelectronics, Nanotech, Physics and Chemistry Modeling), which develop their own field of research as well as a coordinated and multidisciplinary research.

LPT UMR 5152

Laboratoire de Physique Théorique

The Theorerical Physics Laboratory has been founded in 1991 and its administrative structure was established in 2003. Its 20 permanent researchers are divided into 4 groups : "Strongly Correlated Fermions", "Quantum information and chaos", "Statistical physics of complex systems" and "Finite-size fermionic systems - Clusters". The expertise of the LPT ranges from condensed to soft matter, also including statistical and non-linear physics. Learn more
