The laboratory of corpuscular physics of Caen
The main activity of the laboratory concerns fundamental research: it is a matter of studying the properties of the forces at work in atomic nuclei in order to understand the mechanisms responsible for their formation.
The laboratory also conducts interdisciplinary and applied research in the field of downstream nuclear power (transmutation of nuclear waste) and hadrontherapy (treatment of cancers using ion beams).

Our research teams are dedicated to fundamental research in the field of subatomic physics and to applied research in the field of downstream electronuclear cycle and in the field of hadrontherapy.
Our teachers intervene at the university and at ENSICAEN in all the scientific university cycles. Our engineers also propose thematic schools and training courses, within the institutional framework.
Our technical teams develop their skills within the various departments in support of scientific experiments as well as developments at the cutting edge of technology and likely to be valorised.
