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).
