The "Centre d’Élaboration de Matériaux et d’Etudes Structurales" (CEMES/CNRS) is a CNRS laboratory (UPR 8011) associated with Université Paul Sabatier de Toulouse and Institut National des Sciences Appliquées (INSA). Created in 1988, CEMES followed the previous Laboratoire d’Optique Electronique (LOE) created in 1957 by Prof. Gaston Dupouy.
CEMES is a fundamental research laboratory specializing in solid state physics, nanosciences, molecular chemistry and materials science. Its activities cover a broad spectrum from synthesizing (nano)materials and molecular systems to study and modeling of their structures and physical properties (optical, mechanical, electronic and magnetic) and their integration in devices.
An important part of the laboratory’s experimental activity is studying and manipulating individual objects whose characteristic sizes are at the nanometric or atomic scales. Most of this experimental work uses state-of-the-art instrumentation supported by instrumental and methodological developments in the laboratory’s fields of transmission electron microscopy, near-field microscopy and optical spectroscopy. These research and development themes integrate modelling and theoretical studies carried out at different scales within the laboratory.
