IFP Energies nouvelles (IFPEN) is a leading research and training institute in the fields of energy, transport and the environment. From research to industry, technological innovation is central to all its activities.

The new subjects that have come to the fore through the development of new energy technologies require further research on some fundamental issues in order to meet the challenges of the energy transition, such as understanding the relationships between the structures of materials and their properties. This is a crucial issue for certain energy transition technologies, such as bio-based chemistry, soil remediation, or biogas purification through the development of specific adsorbents.
It is essential to develop analysis and characterization tools that will enable us to better understand, quantify and therefore better predict the relationships between these structures and properties.

With this in mind, the Physics and Analysis Division is leading IFPEN's contribution to the CARMEN joint research laboratory (LCR CARMEN). Twenty-five research engineers are developing new methods and analytical methodologies to overcome the hurdles to developing innovative processes by working in partnership with researchers from different Research Divisions, i.e. the Catalysis Division, Bio-Catalysis and Separation Division, the Applied Physical Chemistry and Mechanics Division, the Geosciences Division, the Process Design and Modeling Division, Mobility and Systems Research Division and the Digital Sciences and Technologies Division.
The Physics and Analysis Division groups together very broad-ranging
skills in Analytical Sciences, from elemental analysis to molecular analysis in complex liquid and gaseous media as well as the analysis of the structures and morphology of porous and nano-structured materials.  In operando multi-scale characterization and dynamics in porous media is one of his research focuses.
