Brief presentation of the institution

The Institut Jean Lamour emerged from a common will of the University of Lorraine, the CNRS, the Regional Council of Lorraine and the Urban Community of the Grand Nancy , to capitalize on a long history of research in close interaction with the industrial world, and to establish itself as a major player in the European Research Area in the fields of materials, metallurgy, nanosciences, plasmas, surfaces... It is now one of the largest public research centers in Europe in the field of Materials Science , and one of the largest laboratory of the CNRS. The 23 research teams of IJL, based on eight resource centers and 3 common services are capable of handling a "material" project at all stages of development - from numerical modeling to surface functionalization through the design of production processes or the account of the full life cycle of the product for a responsible and secure development.

Main Plasma with liquids related topics

The scientific objectives are two-fold. One aims to understand gas - surface interactions and the development of new methods of surface treatment, primarily assisted by cold plasmas. One deals with experiment and simulation of warm plasmas. In the first axis, the approach combines experimental and simulation methods to understand processes occurring in the plasma gas phase and to relate them to the final properties of processed layers. Our research also aims to develop new methods of surface treatments, primarily assisted by cold plasmas. Finding ways to improve and control processes in real time and in situ via gas phasemeasurements is one of our main objectives. In the second axis, experimental skills together with modeling and numerical simulation related to warm plasmas are developed. Our activities focus on modeling of plasma fusion by magnetic confinement or inertial confinement, and are leaded within the framework of ITER and LMJ projects. They also find a larger audience on other aspects of plasma physics, such as magnetic reconnection, RF sheaths and the development of new diagnostics. Our team also develops research on mathematical analysis models and numerical schemes.
