IPCMS (“Institut de Physique et Chimie des Matériaux de Strasbourg”), joint research center between CNRS and University of Strasbourg, is an institute at the forefront of international research in the areas of nanomaterials and nanosciences. The multidisciplinary character of IPCMS is exemplified by cutting edge activities in spintronics, magnetism, ultra-fast optics, electron microscopy, STM, biomaterials, synthesis and characterization of functional organic-inorganic materials.

The "3D-TEM" team of IPCMS (team leader Prof. O. Ersen) is familiar with high-resolution electron microscopy and it has been one of the pioneering teams developing 3D quantitative and analytical tomographies. Through collaborations with various research centres it acquired a strong knowledge in the field of nanomaterials and nanostructures as well as of materials dedicated to catalysis. The team is presently setting up different environmental cells that allow in-situ analysis in a probe-corrected electron microscope under gas at atmospheric pressure and high temperature in order to mimic real working conditions for the materials under study, as well as in liquid media in combination with an electrochemical TEM set-up.

The second team of IPCMS involved in the LCR Carmen is “Organic-inorganic hybrids” (P. Rabu, G. Rogez) which has a strong expertise in the study of hybrid transition metal hydroxides or oxides based lamellar compounds, their synthesis and the analysis of their optical or electronic magnetic properties.
