The ESRF – The European Synchrotron Radiation Facility – is the most intense source of synchrotron-generated light, producing X-rays 100 billion times brighter than the X-rays used in hospitals. These X-rays, endowed with exceptional properties, are produced at the ESRF by the high energy electrons that race around the storage ring, a circular tunnel measuring 844 metres in circumference. Each year, the demand to use these X-ray beams increases and near to 9000 scientists from around the world come to Grenoble, to “beamlines”, each equipped with state-of-the-art instrumentation, operating 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
The Institut Max von Laue-Paul Langevin (ILL) provides industrial users with privileged access to a complete world-leading suite of highly-specialised neutron instruments, supported by the expertise and know-how of experienced scientific and technical staff. Our extensive range of sample environment facilities accurately mimic real working conditions: extreme (high and low) temperatures, high pressures, magnetic fields, mechanical constraints (e.g. static or cyclical external loading). They play an essential role in the analysis of in-operando industrial processes.
The Laboratory of Subatomic Physics & Cosmology (LPSC) is studying the physics of the two infinities. Its basic research activities include particle physics, nuclear physics, astroparticles and cosmology as well as their applications and developments for nuclear energy and health, accelerators and ion sources and plasmas. The LPSC operates a fast neutron production platform for irradiation and physics experiments.
Leti (one of the three advanced research institutes within CEA Tech) serves as a bridge between basic research and industry. His mission is to create value and innovate with industry. The core competencies of Leti bring it in the core of the IoT and High Computing world combining low power solution, nanoelectronics, sensors, connectivity technologies and security.
