The vocation of the PRISME laboratory is multidisciplinary in the general field of “Institut des Sciences de l’Ingénierie et des Systèmes (INSIS)” and “Institut de Physique (INP)” on a wide spectrum of disciplinary fields including energetics:

  • materials,
  • microelectronics,
  • nanotechnologies,
  • metrology,
  • radiation sources,
  • biomedical,
  • propulsion,
  • transport,
  • environment.

The laboratory has chosen to structure itself with scientific clusters organized into thematic axes.
